Remember, you have to

	# service wpa_supplicant stop (if you want it to stop now)
	# chkconfig wpa_supplicant off
	# (change the line)
	# chkconfig wpa_supplicant on
	# service wpa_supplicant start (restart it or reboot)

to make it take.  The "chkconfig" commands create or delete the symlinks
used to start it up.  If you already have the "S" link, changing the
line won't make it change.  You have to "chkconfig off" (delete the
symlink), change the line and "chkconfig on" (to create a NEW symlink).
