Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I can't help you with that specific card. I just got a D-Link DWL AG650 up and running using madwifi drivers. I used iwconfig to set options for the card and added an option for ath0 in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf. I don't know how much detail you need so this is at least a start. Let me know if you need more help.
THere is a wireless networking forum here also. You need to look on the side of your card to see what kind it is, or gogle for more informatino because you will need to know what kind of card you have. THere is a thread for vers #4 that is hundreds of posts long on the wireless netorking board.
there are sets of tools out there for wireless networking.
I'm currently trying to figure out how to get my Wifi Edimax to work with slackwre 9.1
Slack comes with a small wifi package called wireless-tools-blahblah.
It installs stuff like iwconfig (networking configuration tools for wifi) etc.
You might take a look at this forum about networking, and searching for tools for your distrubition like the ones that come with slack 9.1
