Using wlassistant in Kanotix.  The card, a built-in centrino ipw2100, is known working, I can connect to my network with other (less attractive) tools.  wlassistant fails to connect.

The command line output is as follows:
alanm@alanmlap:~$ sudo wlassistant

It keeps giving usage info for dhclient, apparently the switches being called by wlassistant are not valid for dhclient in debian?

Any ideas?
