I am working on a driver for it. Docs incomplete; release date unknown;
coming along nicely, thanks; don't e-mail me, I'll e-mail you. =)

What brand of card is it? I might want it. There are at least two
varieties, the first with transceiver/synthesizer by Philips, the second
by GCT Semiconductor.  I have docs for the former but not the latter.
I pried my only instance of the second variety open, and now it will
not go back together again.

I will send instructions how to find out if yours is a 2nd- or 3rd-variety
card without destroying it.
