If you do have any luck I would be interested in hearing about it as
well - I have recently got one of these and it is working well with the
linux-wlan-ng drivers (0.13pre1), but it would be nice to not have to
depend on a non-Debian package.

I did try the orinoco_cs package (amongst others) but could not get it
to work.  I managed to make the config file changes and to get pcmcia
loading the driver on insert, but it wasn't dealing correctly with my
card (kernel 2.4.17) at which point I gave up.
