USB wireless adapters with HostAP?

Beside the compability with the hostap driver and the pci bus, there seems to be another problem with wireless equipment: the antennas. I was almost convinced to buy the DWL-520 or the WMP11. But I've been told that those antennas who are very close to the box arent very useful. Someone gave me the advice to buy USB wireless stuff. You can move it freely around the pc, and USB cable extentions are much cheaper. I believe to have read that the PrismII cards also work with an USB interface.
Are these USB devices also for use under Linux (and hostap)?
