802.11a PCMCIA card under Linux ..possible...?

I am thinking of setting up an all 802.11a wireless network at home. What would be the 802.11a PCMCIA card (with WPA) with best support for Linux? I tried to search HCL but couldn't find any reference to 802.11a supported card under Linux.

I am thinking of getting either a D-Link DWL-AG660 PCMCIA card with 802.11a support or a Linksys WPC55AG with 802.11a support. Has anyone used any of these cards in 802.11a mode under Linux, with WPA turned on? Thanks.
