    You'll probably have to use ndiswrapper. Take a look at:

    How to install new hardware depends entirely on what new hardware. Each device requires completely different steps to get it set up. You wouldn't install a video card the same way you install a wireless card. On that subject, here's a tutorial from our "How-Tos and Tutorials" section of the forum:
