I have read on several sites that it is possible to run Airport on Debian. Since I'm a complete beginner, I would like to know if somebody has already managed to do it, and if so, could he explain quite precisely how he did it ?

	Thanks in advance.


Sure, install `wireless-tools` and use the `iwconfig` command to bring up the interface. All the module selection changes should be done by the configure part of dpkg so the correct modules get loaded as needed. orinco, and two others on my pismo. You'll need to know the key for your net as well and pass it as a parameter to `iwconfig` -- read the man page.

It shouldn't be too hard.
