    33The new NG drivers are confused for an earlier ("old madwifi") driver and are perniciously managed by the Draknet|drakconf|MCC.  You will need to both hand manage scripting the proper operation of the atheros card, and do damage control on the drakconf and Mandrake Control Center (MCC)/network configuration scripts effort to maintain your system and wireless network.

    7 The new madwifi-ng code has a new first step, where '''wlanconfig''' creates '''ath0''' ''(The Old Code Used '''modprobe ath_pci''' for this)''.  NB:  It is ''demonstrably easier'' to install the NG code fresh, especially on the 2006 releases.  If you have a prior install of the Madwifi drivers, see the notes at the bottom of http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/Distro/Mandrake
