    wireless card for fc3


    just installed fedora core3 this weekend want to know what is a good compatable wireless PCMICA CARD to use under fedoria c3 I am runing a HP pavilion N5425. Im very new to linux and finding my way around fairly well, I like fedoria c3 very much had been useing Mandrake 10.1 but it seems laptops are better supported under fedoria c3. Any help will be appreciated.
    thank you

    Even the same models may use different chipsets, but this should help you out:
