Finding hotspots / KisMAC kernel panic

    I'm looking for hotspot-finding software that will work with a PC card,
    Panther, and non-Apple wireless hardware. From what I can tell, KisMAC
    is the only stumbling software that is compatible with Panther and
    doesn't require an Airport card or base station. I'm having trouble
    getting either KisMAC to work with my Powerbook.

    I have a G3 series Powerbook (Lombard 333MHz) running OS 10.3.3, with a
    Lucent Orinoco Silver PC card, and WirelessDriver 1.0.0b5.1. I can
    connect to my Belkin wireless router when KisMAC isn't running.

    I installed KisMAC 0.11b and later 0.12a , installing the WirelessDriver
    patch as recommended. I chose the Orinoco driver in the KisMAC
    preferences. When I tried to scan, to see if KisMAC could find my own
    Belkin WLAN, there was a kernel panic.

    Has anyone gotten KisMAC to work in a similar situation? Or can anyone
    recommend an alternative t o KisMAC?

    Thanks,

    Thanks, but I tried the others. MacStumbler doesn't work with PCMCIA
    cards, iStumbler crashes immediately, and KisMac results in a kernel
    panic. I have a G3 series Powerbook (Lombard 333MHz) running OS 10.3.3,
    with a Lucent Orinoco Silver PC card, and WirelessDriver 1.0.0b5.1.
