Cant get my netgear card to work with Fedora 4

I'm running Fedora 4 on a compaq presario 2100, and every time I plug in my netgear MA401 wireless card, the whole system freezes. This is the first time I've installed linux on one of my comps, so I think that qualifies me as a newbie, and any suggestions on how to fix this would be welcome.
