Don't really see why it'd make a difference really, there's nothing 
specific to either that'd really affect anything, seeing as I've 
compiled my own kernel/pcmcia/kismet independent of debian packages.

(Unless GCC 3.2 gives 25% more wifi power!)

Haha, god no.  I don't use an airport card, only the orinico card so I 
don't use the viha driver anyway (the other one kismac ships with, viha 
wouldn't work).

Not with Linux, with OS X.  The only reason I dual boot Linux on my 
powerbook *is* because of kismet, but I can give that a big boot up the 
backside now.

The only other OS X drivers for the orinoco cards in the pcmcia slot 
are the WirelessDriver ones from sourceforge, and they're incomplete - 
WEP doesn't work properly, you can't automatically scan for SSID's, and 
it tends to crash OS X with a restart screen randomly.  Not to mention 
no RFMON mode.
