Yes this is true, and I should have been more correct originally. I 
meant that the cards are of major suck because of driver weirdness, and 
the lack of hostap mode. Although, I'm still frustrated with the if_wi.c 
but not as frustrated as i look at the HCF code. Given the above, i tell 
people to forget their cards based on the Hermes chips (lucent, orinoco, 
etc), and go with atheros or intersil based card.
