2.6.18 is very old and only supported a few ZD1211 devices. Upgrade to 
Linux or newer.

It's not known whether your device is a "normal" or "strange" AL2230S 
until you try and check the kernel logs. It will identify (and 
reject) the "strange" device as having an UNKNOWN_A_RF radio.

The model used here is that as the user you should have to do precisely 
nothing except for enter your network key. Your distro should ship a 
recent version of the driver and the firmware so that no installation is 
required from the user standpoint. If your distro is not doing this, you 
should file a bug report at their bugzilla.
