PCMCIA Wireless Card

Hi Debian laptopers,

I would like to purchase a wireless 802.11b card for use with my
compaq 2135US laptop running debian woody (2.4.20 with acpi
patch). However I am not sure if the cards all work under just pcmcia
or if they require drivers as well. Could you let me know which
(reasonably priced cards) work and what drivers if any they
require. Any elaboration on your experirnces with this technology
would be greatly appreciated, this is my first journey into the
wireless realm and I fell a bit lost.
