And I can confirm that this card is working nicely on ubuntu. Detected
by the madwifi drivers as ath0, and the xjack makes moving the laptop
about that much easier.

Will look into using wpasupplicant later, it's kind of painful
compared to wap in ubuntu. Hope later versions will include support
for setting up WPA encryption from the GUI.
