Yes, there is Mac OS X support.

I've finally got it working on my Leopard mbp, but I was loosing tons
of packets followed by it crashing after awhile..

I'm hoping that Snow Leopard will work better.  So if anyone turns up
with a Snow Leopard mac I'd be happy to help try and get the drivers
working...  Also Ubuntu/linux might be even easier to get up adn
running.
