        If you want to be able to sniff the traffic silently (one card), 
and then spoof the MAC address and generate traffic (second card), 
you'll definitely need two cards.  Problem is, the iBook only 
supports a single AirPort card, and doesn't have a PC card slot.  You 
might be able to use USB or FireWire attached wireless devices, but I 
don't know whether or not they're supported by KisMac.

        Nope.  That's an Apple proprietary card, and the only device that 
works in it is the Apple AirPort card.

        If you had only one card, you would only be able to switch back 
and forth between sniffing (silently) and generating traffic (via the 
spoofed MAC).  You wouldn't be able to do both.

        If you want to both at the same time, you need a PowerBook with 
two slots (either an AirPort slot and a PC card slot, or two PC card

        If you find anyone who has, please let us know.

        Only the AirPort card will fit there.
