Question Linux Lappy & Wireless PCMCIA - Definitive Guide Request


The players: A Dell Inspiron 4150, a 3com 11Mbps WiFi PCMCIA (3crshpw196) and Mandrake 10.

The goal: To connect to the internet wirelessly.

The assumption: Assume I barely know enough to blink and breathe simultaneously.

I'm looking for a solution that will specifically solve the problem with this particular kit however, it would be nice if it were also applicable generally so I can get another laptop up and running.

I've bled over this issue for yonkers, always running out of steam before succeeding - and I'm sure I've been close - I can get the MAC address listed...

Anyway, if anyone can piece a guide together, it's you guys.

I'm a dunce on this subject, but if I can be tasked to do anything - I'm willing (within the scope of the project of course!).
