Thanks to Francisco Fernández Herrera for this tip:

First, you have to get the kernel source (which can be a bit slow on this machine).

Then, unpack madwifi-x.x.x.x.tar.bz2

You have to apply this patch:

	http://madwifi.org/attachment/ticket/1292/armv4-vfp-fix.diff

Without this patch, you'll get an error:

ld: ERROR: /usr/src/madwifi-0.9.3.2/ath_hal/armv4-le-elf.hal.o uses VFP instructions,
whereas /usr/src/madwifi-0.9.3.2/ath_hal/ath_hal.o does not)

Run "make TARGET=armv4-le-elf" to compile it.

For convenience, compiled binaries and madwifi: fsg-3_madwifi-0.9.3.2.tgz.
