IIRC that is the Yukon chipset. I have one on my laptop and it does
not work. They have a binary package for it and they released the
source under BSDL for it as well. The problem I have with it is it
does not detect the carrier.

Check around on the lists and you will find a link to the source. You
can find the binary driver on their site.
