rtl8180 livecd

I have a wf721-aex r pcmcia wireless card. The card is based on the Realtek rtl8180 chipset (although for some reason "cardctl ident" sayd it's rtl8139 - I hope that doesn't become a problem).

Does anyone know of a LiveCD that will support the rtl8180 chipset without having to partition a harddrive, path a kernel, etc, etc? So far Gentoo's LiveCD and Knoppix 3.3 have failed.

Try the SuSE Live-eval CD. I'm not sure if your card will work, but it's worth a shot. ;^)
