Mixed Airport/Airport Extreme network - Mac Networking

What happens when an Aiport-equipped computer joins an Airport Extreme network? Apple's AP Extreme FAQ says:   (Yes, the above sentence was from the same people who brought you "Think Different.") How much less is "less"? Are we talking about "everybody is now limited to 802.11b speeds"? I'd love to hear from people with actual experience, as opposed to what's theoretically _supposed_ to happen.

    (Please ignore the above snide comment. When I pasted in the quote, it
    showed up in my news reader as "when they sharing." Now it looks fine.
    Go figure.)
