    If you google for "Linux hardware compatibility" or something similar you'll see quite a few different pages, each following different layouts. Each different layout will be more helpful for different people, so I wont recommend any in particular, but it's probably worth gettig more than one source which agrees that a particular piece of hardware is compatible: perhaps also contact the hardware manufacturer.

    Hope this helps

    Have a search for cards on http://www.linuxcompatible.org/
    The biggest security threat is the user.
