Thanks very much, you hit the nail on the head. With this kernel my
card is recognised. Now I can't seem to configure in...network-admin
doesn't work because it seems to think the card's using WEP, when it's
WPA Personal 1/2. I've installed wpasupplicant and edited
/etc/network/interfaces like this:

iface wlan0 inet dhcp 
wireless-essid home
wpa-psk passphrase withaspaceinit
wpa-driver wext

auto wlan0


but I get "No DHCPOFFERS received". I thought perhaps the space in the passphrase
might be the problem and put quotes around it, which didn't help.
