Keep in mind that, these days, 802.11b access points (espcially ones
that aren't "wireless routers" or the like) are noticably cheaper than
Windows licenses.  If this is all being set up new, I wouldn't worry
about spending too much on APs; go ahead and put in one or two on a
floor, and check that you do have good signal everywhere.
