    Wireless Card Set up

    Alright so i couldnt find anything to help me out with my problem, so im gonna ask the experts! alright so i am in the process of making a digital picture frame from an old laptop that i had, but its long since crashed and burned, so i got it "working" today, but i formated the hard drive and installed Linux DSL as the primary OS. I choose DSL from a recomendation of another person has made a digital picture frame already, im competly new to the land of linux and scripts and whatnot, but thatswhy we have google. so my main problem is this, to get the pic frame working i need internet, but the laptop doesnt have an internal wifi card, it has a external card that plugs in through a PCMCIA port, problem is i dont have the driver disc, even if i did i wouldnt know how to use it, i dont have internet on the laptop obviously so i cant download the driver. what do i do? any help would be much appreciated, sorry for the long read

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
