Thanks for your advice, but with 802.11b i know various Compact Flash
cards that work with hostap driver (i.e. D-Link DCF 660W) . I need of a
802.11g Compact Flash.
I've found a Compact Flash: Sparklan WCFM-100 (Marvell Chipset) with
driver support for Linux, but only for kernel 2.4. Now porting to 2.6 of
this driver is my MUST, i think, otherwise there isn't solution for me.
Anyway thank you for your willingness.

Best Regards.
Cristian
