i've done a couple flashes to linksys and buffalo routers, but not to an
actual standalone WAP.. i'd really check openwrt's forums, as there are
a LOT of people there who really know their stuff.

is your WLAN router/switch running linux yet?

(also, i use dd-wrt for some contexts; it has a better web management
gui IMO. the shell access is a little crippled, though, so i don't use
it for everything. just in the instance where someone will want a web gui)
