Well, technically it's not.  The linux-wlan driver ISN'T packaged by
the distribution.  But I'll concede that some cards may work, fine,
but *MY* card didn't work.  I've got a prism2-(mini)PCI card.  It was
not detected by the installer, and obviously the orinoco_cs driver
isn't going to work, either.
