	As others have suggested, if you can't get it working with a native 
linux driver, try installing ndiswrapper and a WinXP driver.  It's pretty 

	FWIW, I recently bought a used laptop from a colleague, and bought a D-
Link WNA 1330 (pcmcia) for about $18 US.  The linux driver would detect and 
initialize the card, but it wouldn't recognize any wireless networks.  (I 
spent quite a bit of time trying to get it to work).  It works fine with 
ndiswrapper, though.
