    On the contrary. I've just setup my wireless card using Ndiswrapper, which uses a windows driver to identify your card. So keep those CD's around!

    Here's the link:

    I use Kanotix, which had ndiswrapper already installed, as well as an app to setup wireless (things like ssid, channel...).
