Yes, I'll try it. When the stuff with el torito won't work, I temporarily kill
my swap partition and install the DOS from an old Windows 9x CD from the
garret ;)

I can guarantee that the controller isn't broken. Before I installed the
Gentoo (that is running on the laptop now) I installed my old Windows XP to
look whether the hardware is broken. But therewith I could get It to work both
with the original Atheros 5xxx driver and with the driver CD Proxim shipped
with this card. So I'am sure, that exacly this card could work on this

I don't know if it's permissible with the license issues, but If you think
those information could help, I'll try to install it again and get those with
the devicemanager.
This would take some time, but I could do it...
