You *might* be able to get a LinkSys card working if there is another card out there that's supported under Mac OS X and that has the same chipset as the LinkSys cards. That sort of trick has worked for Linux, so it might work for Mac OS X as well.
What confounds me is why would they go with a different form factor from the existing Airport cards and exclude all of us existing users?
I had a hunch that Apple had moved to MiniPCI, but the connectors look different (there's a notch in the Airport EXTREME! card but not one in the Prism card).
Anyway, yes, there will be solutions for existing PowerBook users, its iBook users (such as myself) that I am not so sure about.
What I'd really like to see is a solution that will fit in the internal AirPort slot of my PowerBook. It's nice not having something dangling out of your PCMCIA slot.
