I have a wireless card that wasn't detected properly. Either that or Debian doesn't support it. It's a D-Link DWL-520 H/W Ver.: E1 F/W Ver.:3.1.6 I bought from Best Buy recently. The most I can figure is this page which describes how to get it working under linux: http://home.columbus.rr.com/andrewbarr/linux/dwl520e1.html

Also, the guys at Kanotix Linux got it working: http://kanotix.mipooh.net/viewtopic.php?t=4636 (apparently with a 3 line shell script?). I'm going to try to install Kanotix since it leaves me with a Debian anyway, but it would be great if the new installer supported this card!
