Can I use a Belkin Wireless Network Card (Windows 2000 or XP) with Ubunto 8.04

I am new to Linux, having today installed Ubunto 8.04 onto an ageing Toshiba TE2000 which had previously been running with XP Professional. I had been using a Belkin Pre-N Notebook Network Card in the PCMCIA port. This worked well with XP but doesn't work with Ubunto. The Belkin documentation does state that it is suitable for Windows 2000 or XP. Is there any way that I can make it work with Ubunto, or should I look around for another suitable PCMCIA card ( Any suggestions?)
