Yes.. thanks. There are no source pack packages available. I actually
already tried this driver using
apt-get source linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.20-1-386
and then building the modules my self.

Well, as my email indicates I actually run unstable.

I tried these first. Anyway I believe I managed to get all three
drivers working at different stages, ie. the card is seen and the
interface (wlan0 or eth1 depending on the driver) can be configured
with a static IP. My concern is that I'm not configuring it correctly.
I can't test the static IP since I have no other wireless card or hub,
and I can't get dhcp to work.
Anyway thanks for taking the time to make some suggestions.
