I actually got it working just a few mintes ago with madwifi and this http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/Distro/Slackware
. It is working great except that I can't get an ip issued by dhcp (which I am about to research). I can assign one manually though, and this is working for me now.
Thanks for your help though.
I did consider using ndiswrapper, although the driver that is supplied by Toshiba is in a windows exe installer (not a cabinet .exe), so I was not able to extract the drivers from that. I tried calling there customer support, and the first guy I talked to said that they do not offer support for linux, and that I should reload windows with the cd I have. So I called again and tried saying that I lost the cd and there was no download on their website (which there wasn't) and eventually got all the way up to a Level 1 tech support that said he he could send me another cd (which I already have) for $35 or I could try searching online for the driver (which I already did). Can you believe that?
