aargh. I think I finally figured out what's going on - the web pages
were quite confusing. looks like I'm SOL, and that I do _have_ to use
the iwl3945 driver for the device. I thought it had been superceded by
an open-source driver which provided AP functionality.
I was wrong. don't buy this card if you want to turn it into an AP.
All you folks that think closed-source drivers don't matter - this
is why it does. I can't do this precisely because this goofy card uses
a closed source binary firmware load.
