Ahh, thanks for that bit of insight.  I wasn't aware that 32 bit cardbus
was not supported.  I have a compact flash to PCMCIA adapter which I
have a 128MB compact flash card installed in, it was detected fine (no
damage seems to have occurred with either the card or au1100 PCMCIA
slots).  That solves that problem.

At first I was rather disappointed when I read this reply, but then I
looked up the wireless card I want to use (Senao NL-2511 Plus EXT2, a
Prism 2.5 based card) and it is PCMCIA Type II 16-bit which I suppose
should work using the hostap driver.

I've used the hostap driver on 2.4 with a Db1x board. It should work fine with 2.6 as well.
