    Do 802.11b and linux mix well?


    Hi

    I've got a Transio MiniUSB 802.11b wireless adapter that uses a prism 2.0 chip and connects to a USB port on my motherboard.
    I use this to connect to broadband internet in windows.
    How do I get it working in mandrake 9.0?
    Or redhat 9.0...
    My Motherboard is an intel SE440BX3.
    Heard that people have got 802.11b going on mandrake over a few days but they had to recompile their kernel which souns complicated.
    Any ideas appreciated...
