        Myself, I have a PowerBook G4/866 with 1GB of RAM, MacOS X 
10.2.8, an internal AirPort card, and a Senao 2511 CD-Plus. 
Actually, the PowerBook G4 is dead at the moment, and I'm currently 
using a PowerBook G3/400 with 1GB of RAM, using the 40GB hard drive 
from the PowerBook G4, but I can talk to you about my experiences.

        That's the best one available

        Doesn't do WEP.  In my experience, it's not as good as the IOXperts 
driver.

        IOXperts.  Dirt cheap.

        Yup.  I've done it.  You can use either card as your primary 
interface, but I would recommend not trying to use them both at the 
same time.  Decide which one you want to use with KisMac, and use the 
other one to actually access the network.

        You can also use the other card to do things like flood pinging 
other devices on the network, so that you can try to capture enough 
packets quickly to crack your WEP password.  Depending on which card 
you pick for which function, you might also be able to do MAC 
spoofing on the other card, too.
