Persistent WPA setup on knoppix 5.0

Has anyone setup a persistent WPA configuration using the new Knoppix DVD?

Knoppix has found my wireless chip and installed the driver using ndiswrapper. I have used wpa_supplicant before on Ubuntu installs, and it seems to be included with the DVD, so should be able to reproduce that and get the wireless running using WPA.

I have a persistent knoppix configuration on a hard-drive.

But I don't know how to make Knoppix start wireless using WPA every time I boot it.

How does the persistent configuration work?
If I understand the unionfs system, then all I have to do is add the wpa_supplicant configuration files as I did with Ubuntu and they will be there next time I boot with the hard disk image specified? Is that correct?
