Ok, I think I'll look for a DWL-122. I'm fed up with booting OS X just
to have WLAN access, and it doesn't seem that there will be an Airport
Extreme driver for Linux soon.

I have successfully compiled linux-wlan-ng for 2.6.5-rc3-ben0. It told
me that 2.6-support is still experimental, but as you are successfully
using it it should work for me, too.
