HELP Drivers total NEWB question

Ok this is a complete newb question so please don't hurt me!

I have finally got round to making my pc a dual boot in order to eventually squeeze that other one which isn't linux of my hard drive :P

I am however a complete newbie and my first most important task is to get the net running (on the windows part of my schitzo machine at the moment).

I can't find drivers for my wireless lan card anywhere though

it is the 125mbps card made by Vivanco (they only make one) and I don't even know where to start looking for the driver? Is there anything I can do with the windows driver to convert it ?

You could have a look at NdisWrapper. On their list of cards known to work, there is a Vivanco model listed.

It might help people to help you configure NdisWrapper (if you do need to use it) if they know what distribution you use.

Also, please don't ask people to email you as that just takes away the point of the forum.
