You definitely would want to build a compile environment and build the newest kismet. The old one isn't going to work with any modern drivers well and is completely unsupported.

You've got a fairly good chance w/ newcore kismet + libertas since it's built into the kernel and OUGHT to work like a standard mac80211 driver.

If it steadfastly refuses to, generally the alfa cards are cheap, well built, and work pretty well with the kernel mac80211 drivers.
