There are currently 2 sets of drivers that work with the Prism2 cards,
the hermes drivers that come with the 2.4 kernel, and the wlan-ng
drivers. The wlan-ng drivers are the better of the 2, and are
available from linux-wlan.org. These are the linux drivers that most
companies will suggest, ie. if you go to the SMC website, these are
the linux drivers they offer. I have found that most of the prism2
cards are about equal. They all need windows to do a firmware upgrade.
They key is to find a friend with a windows laptop ;-)

I think the best cards out there are the cisco aironet cards. They
actually monitor on all 12 channels, so if you bring the card into
monitor mode, you can grab frames from all channels at the same time.
