Need Recommendation of good wireless card for linux (any)

Can someone please recommend to me a good wirless adapter for use with linux?
I have an old computer (Pentium III 800Mhz, 24Mb video card, 256 RAM), that i want to install linux on. The only thing that is stopping me is that i cant find a wireless card (802.11b) that will easily install on a linux distribution. I havent chosen what disto i want but preferably one that is easy for a windoze user.

Thx in advance and sorry for the bad english

Edit:Its a desktop pc so im looking for a pci or usb (preferably pci)

snufferz, you've just about described my Tosh SatPro 4600 laptop.
I'm sending this via a Cisco 350 on RH9.
Had it for a couple of years, but works like a dream - got to be careful not to update the code on the card from their site though as the later levels aren't supported on Linux.
Got caught once because I dual-boot this with Win200, and downloaded an updated (Win) client. It also updated the card - bummer.
