    Installing WMP54G wireless card on slack 10 for noober :)


    Ok, yes, I admit it, I am a noob straight from windows (the final straw was when I found out that the saudi royal family owns lots of windows stock, courtesy of Michael Moores' book which I highly recommend). I am getting Slackware 10, im almost downloading the last disc, but I need to know how to install the Linksys wmp54g wireless LAN card.

    I read a search and read lots of pages, but they completely confused me . Im only 13 and I know how to use DOS and stuff like that, but on linux im clueless (I used a bit of redhat before at a friends house). Could someone please either give me a link to where I can get a windows dweeb-friendly tutorial, or decipher one of the other pages.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but, what can I say, I did my best lol
    thanks

    I would look at linksys' website and see if they support linux, if not, then you can download a 3rd party driver, but some manufacuters support linux(d-link i believe). if they supply a driver, they should have a relativly user friendly readme, but if that is not the case let us know, i will look for drivers in linux, but i am at work right now and might not be able to spend time on a search untill 2night (east coast time, us)

    AFAIK there are 2 options for your card.

    Use the ndiswrapper project at sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/

    Or use a commercial solution from linuxant. http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/
