After doing a little more debugging, it looks like it's erroring out
at the iwconfig line:

+++ /sbin/iwconifg eth0 essid matrix
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
	SET failed on device eth0; Invalid argument.

Here is a little if the dmesg output:
eth0: Station identity 001f:0001:0007:001c
eth0: Looks like a Lucent/Agere firmware version 7.28
eth0: Ad-hoc demo mode supported

eth0: WEP supported, 104 bit key
eth0: MAC address 00:02:2D:4F:B8:CB
eth0: Station name "HERMES I"
eth0: ready
eth0: index 0x01: Vcc 5.0, irq 3, io 0x0100-0x013f
