ehh, just a disclaimer. I read through the archives and there was an
update to this driver for the DLink DFE-538TX. My card (Dlink
DFE-530TX+) is exactly the same card, except it is the american
distribution of the 538TX (canadian i think). 

I'm not completely sure of the GNU Coding standards, and i'm not sure
what to edit in the file. So i'd still like the diffs from anyone who
can modify the driver, correctly.

thanks again.
