Unfortunately, it is not.

This is what I copied from my working system (mimicing the instruction
parameters)  was:


The 'manual instructions' say to make a wpa_supplicant.conf :


nano wpa_supplicant.conf

As an example, the following stanza can go to this file and will work
for many wireless networks, provided you give the actual SSID and
passphrase for the network you are connecting to:

  psk="the network's secret passphrase"

end excerpt---------------------------------------

note two keys not instructed, which I can only presume means they are
not in the gui script's wpa_supplicant.conf file and are needed by the
hot spot I am connecting to.  If I could edit this before the gui
script begins (installing the iso off my memory stick) this might do
the trick.

Does this help?
