Updating card using Intersil Windows Driver

I know the volatile version can't be written to flash memory.  The only 
reason Windows came into the equation was that Intersil distributes windows 
drivers with recent firmware (1.5.6?) embedded in them.  My preference is to 
flash the card, but if I can't do that the volatile memory firmware + 
prism2_srec should still let me do standards compliant WDS.
