Yeah, they have not developed drivers for any of the D-Link air cards for any linux flavor yet... supposedly Atheros is releasing one sometime soon, but there has not been a date set yet. Till then I would suggest getting a cheap USB wireless for your linux boot.

Sorry to disappoint

I realize this was quite some time ago and more drivers have been released since the first post, but I was able to get the DWA-643 working under Linux Mint 5, which is based off Ubuntu.
