Set up wireless without KDE nor Gnome

One of the first problem faced when going away from KDE, Gnome or XFCE is that you have to set up your wireless connection manually.
If you have 10 minutes, it can be done once and for all: just follow this how to HOWTO: Wireless Security - WPA1, WPA2, LEAP, etc..
Then you can remove the NetworkManager startup script : "sudo update-rc.d -f NetworkManager remove".
Keep in mind to launch a "sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart" in case of problem.

Update: I just found a solution to automatically start Network Monitor Applet (nm-applet) with Awesome Window Manager. But I am quite happy with my current setting, it just connect when it starts.
