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.

Subject: Re: looking for wireless linux security book
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.
