Yes, I remember first researching it, and yes, it was a pain to find at
the time.  However, (ta da!!!) I have a page on setting it up--mostly
written for Fedora users who were getting bitten by NetworkManager, but
it goes through testing and setting wpa_supplicant.

It's not exactly a step by step, and was made for a different purpose,
but see if it works for you. (If the wpa.conf test file that I mention
works, then just copy it over to replace the
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf)

I have another page, that also covers it, as well as having a link to a
more in depth tutorial--again, it was for a specific Fedora issue, but
does go through (in the link to Mike's tutorial) a more detailed write
up of setting up wpa_supplicant.conf.

Spike: Ahhhh, my head. I think I'm sobering up. It's horrible. 
Ah... God... I wish I was dead.
