How can I enable WPA on an Atmel AT76C503 USB 802.11b device?

I have set up an OpenEmbedded build environment on my Linux box, and it is now steadily humming as it cross-compiles Angstrom. I am trying my luck on WPA by building the whole thing myself. I'm willing to use unstable sources if I have too.

The day I wiped out Windows Mobile was the day I said hello to freedom. It was also the day I said goodbye to things that work out of the box. Yet this is fun, and it forces me to learn new things that will come in handy in the future.

Anyway, if you know how to enable WPA on an Atmel AT76C503 USB 802.11b device, can you please leave a note? I'm using an iPAQ H5550. I suspect that I need to modify the driver myself, but I don't know how. Help. =)
