Setting up a wireless bridge with DD-WRT

For some time, Linux folks have upgraded the firmware on Linksys wireless routers to DD-WRT for the added functionality it brings.  If you're not familiar with DD-WRT, it's a Linux based alternative OpenSource firmware suitable for a variety of WLAN routers and embedded systems.
