report for my notebook:

had to replace ath_pci module from madwifi with ath5k kernel module and
change netcfg2 config for ath0 -> wlan0 change. works well here.

running the catalyst driver works but i get a weird report when the
module gets loaded at bootup: unknown symbol

from dmesg:

fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel. 
fglrx: Unknown symbol flush_tlb_page
