The laptop has 2.6.20  (-16-ubuntu).

I have a prism based card around I can try, I think.  That's the only
Airo card.

What's odd is the machine is only about a month old.  And when I first
got it it would only sometimes associate with my AP which didn't
broadcast ssid.  I plugged in the Airo card and then both cards showed
up in the nm-applet.[1]

So when it didn't show up a few days ago I was wondering why.  Maybe
an apt-get update updated a package, I'm not sure.

I think I have a machine that has Windows 3.1 in the basement

[1] Turned out that there's a problem getting that card to associate if
ssid isn't broadcast.
and some faq on that I can't find right now...
