How to get Red Hat and XP networked with a wireless adapter and router


I have a Netgear wireless adapter and a Linksys wireless router. What I would like to do is network my two systems, one running Red Hat and the other running XP. Not sure if the drivers are compatable with Red Hat as it does not see any cd in there when I try to run it. I mainly would like to get my Red Hat system online and start using evolution for my email. Can anyone help me?

Not until you help us, you assume that we have the ability to read minds or have access to your hardware.

Which netgear wireless adapter??? Did you check the HCL here for this adapter???

FYI: Networking the two systems is done by the use of samba rsync and a few other methods, have you read the manuals for Red Hat??
