Fwd: Linux guru needed to write device driver. Burlington, Massachusetts.

I think this is a perfectly reasonable place to talk about the job
without actually applying for it.  Personally, I wrote a Linux driver
for the Baystack 2mb Prism-based 802.11 FH card a few years ago, based
on the then-existing linux-wlan code (also a prism driver, but for the
DS cards).

I'd apply for the job if I actually had time to do it -- I'm pretty
busy for the next 4 months.  I suspect they want someone who can do
the work sooner than July.
