From time to time I check the Linux Broadcom 4301 Driver Project homepage to see how they are doing, and I'm getting excited. They appear to be about 75% done decompiling the drivers, and have also begun writing documentation on how to write the driver.

Maybe in the next few months we will have a working driver for the Airport extreme in Linux!
Note: I'm just speculating about the timeline, I don't know any of the internal details of the project, other than what they have on the site.

Their homepage:

Wow, this is the only thing holding me back from installing gentoo on my ibook G4. Even if it was "unstable" or in alpha or beta I would go for the gentoo installation. I got a larger harddrive planning on dual booting, or running MOL to get what few mac needs I may have.
