Every time I place my Linksys wireless card, model # WMP54G, in my Linux comp, it has trouble booting up. Sometimes video wont show, others it will freeze up on boot up before it can reach Kudzu. I tried to install Slackware, thinking that Red Hat 7.3 wouldnt support the card, but it became corrupted so I have to reinstall it.

Also, my computer will not boot from CD-ROM, no matter what I do...any suggestions?
