You must be sticking with pcmcia cards. The main pci drivers use wlan.
Anyway, the point is. I'll be forcing all wireless cards to use wlanN so I
dont see an issue with that. Having some come up as ethN, some as WlanN
and some as wvlanN (well that won't happen as I'm only using host_ap,
orinoco_pci and orinoco_cs) would seem much dafter.
these are ment to be headless boxes. But I still want them to be as easy
to admin and idiot proof as possible. Hence the desire for ethernet cards
to be called ethN and wireless cards something different,
