the pci card

you need to have ndiswrapper load the driver that came with the card

ndiswrapper is a wrapper to allow windoze drivers to run on
linux boxes so you might lose some functionality
- my linksys wmp54g can't do wep-anything with ndiswrapper to netgear
  wg311 with madwifi  ( but i can live with it ... i dont use linksys )

ndwrapper howto 

	- get ndiswrapper from sourceforge

iwconfig howto
