I think I should stay out of this...

My belkin PCMCIA works under SuSE 8.2 (in a laptop), but I had to find
a driver (SuSE didn't provide one).  My problem is getting the Belkin
pci card in my desktop running under the new kernel.

I'm "patiently" waiting for the 2.6 driver. The guy working on it is
hammering away, but has yet to add Adhoc support. (So I hope no one
comes up with such a cheap solution for William that I run out and buy
something and ditch the belkin <smile>).

Good luck!
