WiFi Card for Linux?

Okay, I'm looking to buy a laptop, which will have only Debian Woody on it.

But my question is do most WiFi cards work for Linux? Specifically this one? Any suggestions on another WiFi card? (Must have 802.11g, that's what my LAN is hooked up with.)

Thanks a million guys.

I heard the Linksys ver 3 WPC 11 works great. <grumble> Thats the same card i have. I must be very very dumb because i cannot get it to work, but i refuse to give in and stop trying.

Anyway, i have tried SMC, Dlink, and Linksys, and i got the closer with the Linksys.

My company makes a card too, but i can't tell you how well that will work in Linux, because we barely got it a week ago. I need to get a card i know to work up and running first, then i will worry about the other one. but if i do get it working, or if anyone wants to tackle it i'll send you one for free.

just make sure you let me know how you do it.
