Aircards take a bit of magic to make work, but they will work. I had a Sierra PCMCIA aircard that after I installed the driver and set it up to work as a modem through Wvdial it worked fine. I don't know of any that are designed to work with Linux so you just need to pick one and make sure they have a Linux driver available on their site.
