Change Linksys WRT54G router to access point only

I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. I would like to use it as a wireless access point only. I have a new VPN router for the network but it does not have wireless capability. Is it possible to reconfigure the Linksys to be just an access point? If so, How?

Just plug one of the LAN ports on the WRT54G into the LAN ports on the other router. The linksys wont care if it is not actually routing or not.
Also, make sure to disable DHCP on the WRT54G.
Agree.  And assign the Linksys an IP and change the admin and password.  Also, set the SSID appropriately and decide if you want to broadcast or not.  Also decide on encryption and mac filtering.

Wow, that was easy! I apologize to the other contributors. I was going to split the points but made a mistake when I accepted the answer. I don't see any way to 'UnDo', so will pay closer attention next time.
