Depends on what you want to do with it. If you just want to sniff 802.11b, then the KisMac drivers should be fine. If you want to do real work, then you'll need drivers from somewhere else. Personally, I like the IOXperts drivers.

                                                    And on a sidenote:
 do you guys make your own antennas?

I know some people that do, yes.

                                     I read that these cards use a
 proprietary antenna port that won't work with standard wireless

If it's the same as the Lucent, there are plenty of antennas available on the market that will work with those connectors, although you may need a pigtail adapter.
