Perhaps I am just a wuss but I took the coward's way out and just bought
a bridge device than runs on its own with an ethernet output...

No drivers to worrry about and it works well for me.  

Hope this helps.

Google is your friend. I found this howto pretty easily; it even
includes info on an old Compaq USB adapter I picked up last year. Who
would have imagined it was supported under Linux?

I'd suggest getting the Sunday ads and seeing what's on sale, then
checking the howto(s) (and Google) for Linux driver horror stories and
support.
