Look for the MadWifi drivers.  I believe the AT or Livna repository has 
them.  (Or you can build them from source.  Just make sure you have 
kernel-devel and sharutils installed.)

There is a problem building MadWifi on kernels 2.6.18+.  I have not gotten 
that working yet.  (Supposedly you just replace all the includes for 
config.h to autoconf.h, but that still did not compile for me.  Need to 
spend more than 30 second on the problem I guess...)
