Tim has added a section to his Broadband Security article about Wardriving. Here's a taste:

I actually knew a guy who took this a step farther and wrote a program on his Commodore 64 that could spoof the phone company computers and let him make "free" long distance phone calls...well, at least free to him...but I digress.
