Going wireless with Powerbook G3

Dear Forum:

I have an old Powerbook G3 233 which has Yellowdog 3.0.1 installed. I want to go wireless with this notebook. What options are available as far as wireless cards are concerned? And where would be the best place to get a tutorial on setup?

I use ndiswrapper for my wireless card and it works perfect:
It lets you use windows drivers with linux.. other options include driverloader:
or native linux drivers for your card if its supported.. you can google your wireless card model for linux drivers.

Good Luck
