I just returned from a stay at the Club Quarters hotel in Chicago.  They
have wireless access in every room, at no additional charge.  I took an
Aironet card with me, assuming I would have to tweak it some.  Booted my
Dell laptop with the card, su'ed to root to config, and found that it
was up, configured and live!!  It had chosen the wireless card ahead of
the built-in 10/100 nic, and gotten the correct ID, dhcp, etc.  Very
impressive.  RedHat 7.3, with the sole addition of the wireless-tools
rpm package.
