I just bought a Netgear MA-111 USB wireless thingy for my 12" iBook G4,
and it works great with the linux-wlan-ng drivers.  prism2_usb is the
one.  I'm writing this from Valentino's at the moment, no less.  I'll be
at clug with said usb thing if you want to ask me about it or see it in
action or anything.
