I wonder too!! :-) Nice little piece of hardware... I checked yesterday
apple's website and got enchanted by that thing!! If you get anything
about that camera, please post it here, coz I for one would love to
hear/read about it!
Now, someone with that camera, time and knowledge could try the kernel
drivers [IEC61883-6 (Audio transmission) support and OHCI-1394 Video
support], that assuming Apple is following that standard (IEC61883-6).
It would be _GREAT_ if that camera works in our wonderfull linuxes |-)

I heard/read you can run linux in that flying saucer 8-) but... I think
you can also run linux in other wireless stations... they don't look as
cool as the Airport one, but hey... money is always an issue!
About the trouble part... as far as I understand wireless, the station
is just another router, but capable of connecting wireless devices.
Thus, with a different station, the setting up part for a wireless card
in the laptop remains the same, and the rest should be explained in the
manual of the wireless station, shoudn't it? :-)
