Yes it does.

So the commands would be something like this

Find your ad-hoc network
    iwlist eth0 scan
Configure your moko
    iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc channel 6 key s:XXXX
    iwconfig eth0 essid YYYYY

You should be able to do all on one line, but for some reason you have 
to specify the essid on a seperate one.
