I didn't feel like fighting over it, so I just started using one of the
many PCMCIA wifi cards I have lying around. It's a (hold on, I have
to postpone this message so I can eject it...) MSI CB54G2. Works
fine under Linux.
Before I was using Intel's 2915 802.11 A/B/G card, which works great
but requires you to load a proprietary microcode blob at boot time. :P
