OK - I'm not a major C hacker but I'm trying to get a good feel for the driver with my interest in 802.11b generally.  What seems interesting is that the MacOS software config's the card so that a linux box running managed mode can pick it up easily.  It seems to be the most accesible point to access to infrastructure mode.

I'd like to look into writing stuff for this - as well as potentially some user space stuff for ad-hoc networking.  I probably need some pointers on endian clean programming but just a url/book ref and I'll get stuck in.
