I've tested this on Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy and 7.04 Feisty but I don't see why it shouldn't work on other OS's.
To install ipwraw-ng,
wget http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/ipwraw-ng-2.3.4-04022008.tar.bz2 tar -xjf ipwraw-ng* cd ipwraw-ng make sudo make install sudo make install_ucode echo "blacklist ipwraw" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ipwraw sudo depmod -ae
To use ipwraw-ng,
The device created will automatically be in monitor mode. You can use iwconfig to set the channel and rate.
sudo modprobe -r ipw3945 sudo modprobe ipwraw
And when you're done,
sudo modprobe -r ipwraw sudo modprobe ipw3945
