Hard Question

    I know that somehow, I think the kernel, must look for the wireless 
hardware and then read it and determine what it is, and then choose the 
proper kernel drivers to make wireless work. I have a Atheros wireless 
device on my laptop and it seems to be using ath_? devices. One is 
called ath_pci and this makes me guess it is the thing that finds the 
hardware. Then ath5k is the driver the kernel uses to make wireless work.

    Am I full of it, or is this about how it works. I need to know so I 
can check the Jaunty updates for a problem.
