The card is unsupported. On my laptop, the kernel panics when I try and do a scan with an AR5424 card.

Simplest solution is to use a different distro (ubuntu has reasonable support out of the box as far as I know) or buy a more compatible wifi card.

Well, if you want to help, you can by emailing atheros and asking them to provide documentation for the chip. You could also donate your card to the openbsd project (because it's not working in openbsd anyway, right?) if you feel like it.

I think he can't donate the card since it's likelly to be soldered in his laptop's mainboard.

Why so? I've never seen a wifi card soldered to a motherboard - they've always been in Mini-PCI or (more recently) Mini-PCI-Express format.
