    A book from Syngress may be of interest also. I just started it.

    WarDriving: Drive, Detect, Defend: A Guide to Wireless Security
    By Roamer (Chris Hurley), Thorn (Frank Thornton), and Mother (Michael
    Puchol), Russ Rogers, Tech Ed.
    Forward by Jeff Moss of Black Hat, Inc.

    There's also a good article in the current (June 2004, V12, N6) SysAdmin
    magazine on open source tools to create a secure wireless environment -
    title is Building a Secure Wireless Network Using FreeRADIUS - pp 15ff.

    I haven't read the book, but I'd recommend it just based on the title.

    There is another book I haven't read (am I being helpful today?) that
    has a chapter on WEP and WPA. That would be "Linux Unwired." (Amazon,
    et. al.) There are only a couple of VPN references in the relevant
    sections though. It does seem to go into some detail into how to set up
    a Linux wireless station as an access point. Once you are there, I
    imagine a lot of the more general VPN literature would apply.
