Ready to run cards for fc4 can be tricky. only familiar with older cards like orinoco silver and golds, linksys prism2 cards. Just about any will work with the ndiswrapper module. Easy to install as long as you have your current kernel source code on the drive. Lots of info here on this and other sites. Atheos cards are nice using madwifi modules like linksys wpc55ag. Check out the HCL link above.
