Has anyone gotten the atmel wlan driver to work under a 2.6 kernel?

Are you interested in how to get this done under "any" 2.6 kernel, or only under FC2?
I finally managed to get my Linksys WUSB11 V2.8 which uses the berlios.de version of the Atmel drivers to work on my Linux From Scratch system using a 2.6.5 kernel. I can give you the specifics for that, but not sure how well that would map to what you might have to do on FC2.
I would be very interested if anyone has any pointers. I have a linksys WUSB11 v2.8 usb wireless card, and am running a 2.6.7 kernel under gentoo. Ive compiled the atmel module in the kernel, which leads me to believe that this is the same driver as at berlios.de. I have also downloaded the firmware package and installed that for hotplug to pick up.
As I understand, I should be using the at76c505_rfmd2958 driver, is this correct? If so, I hear that I should be changing a source file somewhere (kernel source???) so that my product id and vendor id are in there.
Currently I get a message telling me that no driver is installed to deal with the wi-fi adapter.

Actually I think the one for the kernel is not the Berlios one, but rather the "other" one that the Berlios one states it is better than for various reasons. That could be part of the problem...
Assuming you need the Berlios version, in my case I needed to compile the driver, do the install, unplug and then replug in the device, and then manually modprobe the correct driver. For the WUSB11 V2.8 this is the at76c505-rfmd2958, not the default one as shown in the README for the driver.
