Wireless Cards

So I've decided to get a wireless PCI card for my desktop machine at home 
so my laptop can connect to it wirelessly, either in ad-hoc mode, or 
preferably using HostAP mode to turn my desktop machine into a Linux 
Wireless Access Point.

Unfortunately, I've been having no luck whatsoever finding a wireless PCI 
card that for-sure plays nicely with Linux. From what I've been able to 
find, the Intersil/Prism cards are the only ones that do HostAP for sure.

Does anyone have suggestions as to what wireless PCI cards to buy that 
play nicely with Linux, and perhaps even links where I can buy them?

Thanks in advance,
