Well yeah it seems the rev A1/A2 uses the Intersil Prism chipset, and I
can't find anything that says the usb version has any support in linux.
The rev B1 on the other hand is a ralink rt2500usb and should work with
the gpl drivers for linux.  Certainly it seems support wise you want the
B1 revision not the older A revisions.
