    Well, did you try it? So try it! "Enabling SWAP space" is just one of many steps Linux goes through to get started. Depending on which distro, or variety, of Linux you have, there will probably (hopefully) be a screen saying that some new hardware has been found and do you want to configure it. In any case, there is no harm in trying it, Linux won't screw anything up.

    On the other hand, there is a good chance that it won't work right away. I don't know much about wireless setups, but I think you may need to use ndiswrapper. Some information is here. If you need more help with that, try posting again with a suitably descriptive "Subject" and be sure to mention what distro you are using: Fedora, Mandrake, Suse, or whatever.
