I'm experimenting with wireless networking and have some cards from
RadioLan.  They don't come with drivers (except for DOS).  So, I'm off
to write one myself.

I've played with disk drivers back in 4.2 or 4.3 BSD, but that's the
extent of my device driver experience.  I've got the Design of the 4.3
BSD UNIX system book.  Is the 4.4 book more useful for FreeBSD?

Any pointers or suggestions?  I checked the tutorial referenced on the
documentation page, but it was mostly empty.

I've got a 30-day evaluation on these cards, so I've got to get
something up in the near future to tell me whether or not I should keep
them.
