Simplest answer is install 2.6.22-1-amd64 from sid.  You can leave
everything else from lenny.  I believe adding the driver seperately
would be very hard since a lot of new wifi infrastructure was added

I don't think 2.6.22 contains ath5k, although you could check by doing:

modinfo ath5k

Hi again.. I installed a new kernel from sid repositories and it include the ath5k module. Look this:

debian-laptop:/home/maximilinux# modinfo ath5k

When i saw that.. i said :"Woooww!! it's perfect" but it isn't:

ath5k_pci 0000:03:00.0: registered as 'phy0'
ath5k phy0: failed to resume the MAC Chip
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:03:00.0 disabled
ath5k_pci: probe of 0000:03:00.0 failed with error -5

OMFG!!! What can i do?!?!?!?!?!

I think if i will install debian lenny for 32 bits.. it will work?
