I don't know...  I installed the intrepid kernel three months back, because
I never had a working Hardy kernel.

Assuming that I got those drivers with that kernel, they're _way_ better
than the ndiswrapper driver I was using in gutsy, but the driver still
drops a lot of frames with "wlan0: RX too short data frame payload".  

otoh, if I don't have the ones Dell's talking about, I'm drooling in
anticipation :-)
