I currently use it and I have the following kernel modules installed:

- orinoco;
- orinoco_cs;
- hermes;

and relative dependencies.
Using an official k-image you will find them already compiled, such as 2.6.8

I'm using wireless-tools to get infos about access-point (iwconfig) which
I connect to, and stuff like that.
I use dhcp with the following lines:

auto eth0
iface eth2 inet dhcp
wireless-essid xxxxxx

in /etc/network/intefaces.
To detect which ethXXX the system ``sees'' the wi-fi card, use iwconfig!
