4. vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ath0
ESSID=<Your network name goes here>
KEY= <Your security key goes here if you have one>
5. ifconfig ath0 up

Dunno if this'll help or not, but this seemed to work for me in Kubuntu 7.10 (saved this as a .sh and ran it to connect):
# Main commands
# To create an access point, use:
wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
# Connecting using WEP key:
iwpriv ath0 authmode 1
iwconfig ath0 key <hex key>
# To get an IP address:
sudo dhclient ath0
