Post HOWTO for RT2400-based 802.11b PCI/PCMCIA wireless adaptors on Linux

I've drafted a HOWTO for compiling / patching and setting up the drivers for cards based on the Ralink RT2400 chipset for 802.11b PCI/PCMCIA adaptors. It's a bit of a hassle, but these cards are dirt cheap and work well enough in the average home LAN setting.

It's in the forums at Minitar's web site:

I don't work there, I just use one of these cards.

The HOWTO is currently a 3rd-draft and deals with how to create the drivers and set up a network config based on static IP.

I'll add DHCP instructions soon.

I've e-mailed you the URL. Maybe I've posted here enough to not be a potential spammer any more.
