2.6.17 along with gcc 4.1.1, glibc 2.4 and all the rest of testing have 
been moved down to current/extra. You should be able to get the kernel 
without too much risk... well, you know what I mean. ;)

In any case, as I hear some locals running arch on ppc reporting to me, 
the Airport Extreme card does not quite work stable yet. There's a few 
hickups it causes every now and then. For example never try to drive it 
at any more than 11Mbit/s or it may freeze your machine sooner or later.
