Ach. And I suppose taking the image from the W2K driver to download it to the card from a Unix system will be cumbersome (i.e. either the user has to copy it him/herself from its own install of the driver, or we face copyright violations if we bundle it with the driver)... Or is that image available in an easy way (e.g. it's just a file in an archive freely downloadable, and with a file format that is understandable by a unix machine)?
Actually, did anyone try the AP functionality on W2K? What are its features/limitations if any? I guess unless the driver changes completely when in AP mode, features must be quite limited...
Just my EUR 0.02...
