Actually, my wife had Airport Extreme working with Mandrake Linux 8.2, and she g
ot it working with Debian 3.0 Woody, which I'm using now. I use an Orinoco card
in my Powerbook Wallstreet G3 to conect to the base station. We *did* have a lot
of trouble with YDL - and it was related to the kernel. I don't know why she co
uldn't get it to work with that exactly; but she was having trouble making modul
es. She rebuilt the kernel at least seven times. In the end, she had errors upon
trying to install orinoco_cs via the /sbin/insmod command, and upon rebuilding
pcmcia_cs, had problems with unresolved symbols. Hope that helps.
