Thanks for the info, Jens.

This is the new unstable 2.6.6 Debian kernel. "modprobe airport" worked,

    Module                  Size  Used by
    airport                 7968  0 
    orinoco                56340  1 airport
    hermes                 15136  2 airport,orinoco

After inserting the modules, I'm still getting an error, though. "eth1
no wireless extensions". Any clues?

Ahah. eth0 has become the wireless interface, and eth1 is ethernet. Now
everything works.
