PCI Wifi card

are there any wifi cards that work out of the box on this site:

http www dot expansys dot com/d_wireless dot asp

? I was thinking of getting the DWL-510 one but they made a version 2 of that with a different chipset.

it doesnt have to be wireless-g but it would be nice, any other card that they would sell in dixon/maplin is okay too, and I might consider a USB one but I have no free USB ports on this machine.

i'm using mepis, but i might get another distro soon, like mandrake 10.1 or FC3 or ubuntu

[bah cant post urls cause i'm a ]
