 To do it on the cheap, you will need a cardbus or pcmcia to isa pci card,
 and a wireless card to plug into that.

 That is the setup I have at home, a sitecom wl010 pci-cardbus card that
 I got for 40 quid from PC Works in Tottenham ST and a Silver Orinoco
 that I bought through ebay in the states, I paid $40.

 I haven't tested it with more than one client, so I can't comment about
 that, if you plan to have multiple clients you an consider an AP,
 prices are much higher...
 Do check consume.net, and/or subscribe to the list.

 And remenber, I still owe you a beer.
