    I tried it with both an Ethernet adapter (realtek) and a pci sound card
    (Creative SoundBlaster.) The Ethernet adapter works fine with both live-cd
    (slax) and hd-install (archlinux) but I can't get the the soundcard to work
    with alsa on archlinux. However, as it does play when using /dev/dsp2
    strait, this is possibly a different problem.

    I guess I'll go ask on the madwifi mailing list. Sorry about the noise...

    My guess is that they're not to proud of that detail...

    Any way, I had forgotten about that. I suppose my 'same results with two
    different drivers' reasoning melts away with that.
