Question DSLv4rc4 & WPC11v4


I did a HD Install of DSL 4.0rc4 on a Dell Latitude CP M166ST (166Mhz CPU with 32Mb of ram, 4G HD with 244Mg Swap) I have searched the forums for help with my wifi card (linksys wpc11v4) but for some odd reason DSL does not see it. I am a Linux noob so any help would be great. Thanks in advance
