Laptop Sony VAIO S360 & WiFi Problem


Recently I installed Mandrake 10.1 on to a Sony VAIO S360. The installation went great except for sound and except for the built in wireless card. Mandrake successfully detected and brand-labeled all of the network cards in the computer:

Ethernet
1394 Adapter
WLAN

However, I cannot figure out how to get the built in WLAN to work. I am new to Linux and have been using SuSE 9.2 Professional for about 2 months. I had to use ndiswrapper on my SuSE machine. I don't think I have to do that on my VAIO laptop since the network cards were all detected. Please advise.

There's a WLAN howto here in the Wiki or Tutorial section and then there's the link in my signature.
