An update:

Besides I expected something like wlan0:

... while there is no eth1 at all.

This can be cured using the patch at
http://www.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff_plain;h=fe7215caa033814cee1e6808e44132b7cefb1a9e;hp=e9ffb3d7ec94083a44a8721681391beca2ffd68c

Now I can do

| # iwconfig eth2
| eth2      802.11g zd1211  ESSID:"*******"  
|           Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.432 GHz  Access Point: 00:14:BF:**:**:**  
 
|           Bit Rate=1 Mb/s   
|           Encryption key:off
|           Link Quality=100/100  Signal level=100/100  
|           Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
|           Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

but I actually do not trust the "Link" and "Signal" numbers.

In my setup:

( Notebook with zd1211b ) ... ( access point ) --- ( server )

I see at the server a lot of packets like

22:42:33.855426 00:13:49:**:**:** > ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff sap 00 xid/R: 01 00 len=40
                ^ MAC of WLAN adapter

so traffic gets through but not IP. But this might be a problem outside
of zd1211 - I never succeeded in getting the kernel 80211 stuff running
thus far.
