Assuming you have the wireless device driver losacted it is easy:
Run NetworkManager and NetwotkmanagerDispatcher and stop network init.d
scripts. Ask if you don't know how.

Then when you login to a gnome session right click on the nm-applet icon
in the left of the upper panel. Choose the AP you want to connect to and
fill in the asked for information. No information for a AP that is open.
