Dell Inspiron 2200 Wireless Card Question


I am new to linux, and I am running Slackware Linux v13.37 and I am trying to make my computer work with a Linksys wireless adapter card.
Can anyone help me?

After reading some of the other threads I found that it is helpful to post the lspci readouts:

Install wicd from the install cd/dvd. It is in the /extra folder. That should help you get connected.
