FSCA16xx & Ubuntu 8.10

One week from the official release and Ubuntu 8.10 support was added to the fsca16xx script.

One bump though:
Currently there is a bug and yet another bug in Ubuntu 8.10 that causes it to load 2 different drivers (ath_pci && ath5k) for the Atheros wireless adapter. This causes the wireless not to work.

The script update does not handle this as it affects most of the people that use a wireless Atheros adapter and not just FSC laptops. It should be delt with by the Ubuntu Kernel team.
