No the hal in this case is NOT the hald you might refer to. It's the
module ath_hal.ko that comes with madwifi. This consists of a closed
source lib and some interface glue c files. this module creates an
abstract if to the hardware, which the madwifi driver itself uses.
there is a 64bit version of ndiswrapper. (of course you need XP 64 bit
windowze drivers).

obviously, I would not have been able to compile, and load 32bit stuff
in an 64 bit kernel.

nice info, thx a lot. I'll try it.
nope. the problem is that wine doesn't wrap / emulate the windows calls
to inquiry the hardware.

This might be the case, but it's not the problem here. i tried to boot
of an livecd, and compiled madwifi for 32bit, and it still won't work.

This is an genuine problem with closed source drivers (tm).
