Cool!  Is 1.5.6 also viable, or is that too experimental?  :)

I take it the only upgrade path involves Windows?

While I'm at it:  Is it possible to apply these upgrades to Prism 2 (not 2.5)
hardware?  I have never been able to get any confirmation of firmware upgrade
compatibility from Linksys, Intersil, or anyone.  Intersil said that, for
$50,000, they'd answer simple questions like "can this card ever be debugged".
