    All Linux distributions will be able to use the same drivers, the web site for your card can be found here:
    Intel® Wireless WiFi Link drivers for Linux*

    It says that the driver is included in kernel version 2.6.24 and newer. You would just need to make sure that you can get that kernel, usually through an upgrade.

    Most newbies like Ubuntu, and the latest version comes with the 2.6.24 kernel. Go ahead and try several, openSUSE and Fedora are also popular.
