Wireless Linux and Mac OS-X

We have a Mac White, dual USB, iBook with an old Airport 11b card. I now need to build a wireless network to include my SuSE 9.2 Linux box. I don't have a router/hub or a card for the desktop machine. I have 2.8Ghz, P4 on an intel board with 1G of memory. Right now it's hooked directly to our (Spanish) Telecable cable network modem. Any suggestions for a router and card that I can purchase in Europe?

If you wanted to be adventerous, you could pick up a cheap usb wireless stick (I've bought two that had the atmel chipset for about $20USD and they've worked fine) and use that on your linux desktop. Then just create an ad-hoc network between the desktop and notebook.

I'd recommend a linksys wireless broadband router.. but I am from the US and am not sure how well it will work in Europe..
