Blocking adhoc networks

Hi all, first time poster....
For the last coupe of months I've been recieving an SSID "hpsetup" from one of the flats surrounding me, presumably from a wireless printer. It's become increasingly frustrating, as everytime I wake my iBook up from sleep, it connects to it instead of my SSID.
Is there any way I can block these networks? I've found details that suggest you can do it in XP by only choosing to display insfrastructure networks, is there anything similar in OS X?

10.5 - System Preferences - Network - Airport - Advanced
Add your network into the Preferred Networks box and delete the others - it will then auto join your own network.
Similar in 10.4 - but don't think you have to click on advanced.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
