Microsoft MN-520.  Only one I could find on the store shelves that was
16-bit and thus would work with 4-stable.  Of course, that means you
only get 802.11b.

You'll need to create your own /etc/pccard.conf w/the following entry:

# Microsoft MN-520
card "Microsoft" "Wireless Notebook Adapter MN-520"
    config auto "wi" ?
    insert  /etc/pccard_ether $device start
    remove  /etc/pccard_ether $device stop


Works like a champ...
