Hrrm, I could have sworn that I fixed that link. For some reason, they
moved from madwifi.org to madwifi-project.org.  Ah, I see, I fixed the
link to the snapshots but overlooked the one to the ticket.  It's now
fixed, and many thanks for calling that to my attention.

No, I'm referring to the elrepo-testing version.  As mentioned by both
of us, the stock one doesn't work with the card.

I really should, but for one thing, Dag and others are having different
experiences with the card and the MadWifi version, as it stands at
present, works, whereas the elrepo version does, at least for me (but
not Dag and others, AFAIK), cause problems on shutdown (or stopping the
wpa_supplicant service.)  

Thanks for all your input, and of course, it's nice to hear that wiki
article helped someone.
