I'm currently using both the USGS/Terraserver DOQ WMS imagery and the
NASA Landsat WMS imagery, and can say ka-map handles them nicely,
assuming you tweak them a little bit. Specifically, I've found that
increasing the tile size and compressing the images yields relatively
quick loading maps of good quality (http://mds.glc.org/glosMap/htdocs).

If you had any specific questions about this, I'd be happy to help
