LInux Drivers for wfi card
I've often tinkered with Linux and downloaded many flavours, however my wlan card never works - its not recognised.
I've just downloaded some linux drivers and ideally would like to install the card and try, to begin with Puppy Linux.
I have a deb file, a tar file and a rpm zip directory. The card is a Safecome SLWC-54108
What do I do next after I run Puppy from the to install the drivers?
Hope to hear from you
PS Am a linux novice but would dearly love to learn more.

I don't run any wireless devices myself so can't help your wifi issue directly, but here's a HowTo giving the steps to several different ways of installing software under Linux that might help to get you going:
Also, note that you can often find specific installation instructions within some downloaded files themselves once you've extracted them.
Let us know how it goes.oz
