It depends on the make and model of your USB wireless card. A quick and dirty solution is to look up ndiswrapper (the sourceforge site is down right now) which lets you use the windows drivers for most cards.
If you need help installing and configuring it let us know. Also, if you can tell us what kind of card you have we might be able to point you to native drivers which are usually a better option.
Let us know how you get on,

To find the USB hardware information on a Linux PC, enter this command into a terminal.
I see Vector Linux is based on Slackware. I am not familiar with Vector or Slackware, so bear with me. You could also install a more newbie friendly version of Linux, such as Ubuntu.Paul
