hmm well I had problems getting my airport driver from ben's site to
compile when I got my airport card for my same model pismo, however I was
using it with 2.4.*, anyway I posted a quick hack of a patch to linuxppc-dev
list that would allow trhe thing to compile and be used, so I have been
using that hapily since. You may want to have a look back in that mailing
list's archive and use the patch or not, the two changes were pretty

The change from using dev->name = s; to strncpy (dev->name, s, strlen (whatever))
is a 2.4 ism, the other thing was just something stopping it from building,
anyway good luck.
