[clug] Wireless PCMCIA card recommendations

I have a Dell 5150 with an integrated Broadcom 4301 Wireless card.
Broadcom dont support Linux (Even though Linux is used in many Wireless
routers that have Broadcom chips. Isn't that rude! ).  

After trying the ndiswrapper route without success I've decided that I need
to buy a wireless PCMCIA card and leave the built-in one alone.

Does anyone have any recommendations on what brand I should buy to get the
best Linux support?  I'm using 2.6.6 with SuSE 9.1.

I assume I'll need 802.11[a,b,g].
