Thanks to Andrew I'm this close to having the dwl-520 working inder
Debian SID 2.6.4.  I thought I'd pass this along.  To get rc.wlan to run
on boot under Debian first do a simple edit to the rc.wlan script for
Debian:

search & replace /usr/sbin/iwconfig w/ /sbin/iwconfig

chmod +x rc.wlan
cp rc.wlan /etc/init.d
update-rc.d rc.wlan defaults

I still don't have the card working but I'm close.  Probably a
misconfiguration on either the router (Linksys wrt4g) r my wlan card but
I'll get it eventually.  

# /etc/init.d/rc.wlan restart
