I want to do some zaurus to zaurus WiFi communication (that is peer to peer) and have been able to do this by creating an new profile with a "adhoc" config and assinging a IP address (192.168.0.1&2)

I want to know if it is possible to start this profile from my program with out the GUI. Is there a script for doing what the little applet does in the tray.

Does anyone know what this applet is even called

Thank you for any advise you can provide.

From a script, you can do the following:

/sbin/cardctl scheme AdHoc

where "AdHoc" is whatever name you assigned to the adhoc config.

Depending on what language you're developing your app in, there is usually a way to shell out & execute commands like the above.
