Congratulations on getting the driver to work, but I caution you not to rely 
on the "Blue Light" telling you it is working.  I have a Broadcom "B43" card, 
and I was able to use the native Linux driver.  I was fooled for a long time 
into thinking it wasn't working because the stupid little lights don't work 
at all with the Linux driver.  In other words, as I was trying to debug the 
installation, I was actually making more progress than I thought because I 
kept on expecting to see the blue light.
