Through linux-native drivers, I think none of them is supported... However, using ndiswrapper from http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/ you can make a lot of them work almost perfect.

I have never tried it myself, but it seems fairly simple...

some usb adapters have native linux support. take a look at this page for example: http://www.linux-wlan.org/docs/wlan_adapters.html.gz. or there is driver for WSUSB11 ver 2.5 (i don't know if it's good or not, i just saw it).
