How to install/ detect my external wireless card

I am running Ubuntu 9.1 on my Gateway M305CRV and love it . . HOWEVER:

Less I am plugged directly into the internet with Ethernet cable . . I have not internet. I purchased this laptop just prior to when internal wireless cards/ modems were standard . . thus I have an external Dell brand (True Mobile 1300-802.11 b/g PC Card) wireless card.

Ubuntu does not seem to automatically detect it and I dont see any easy to use features on the desktop that will help me. I would like to install the driver for this device and use the wireless internet.

What to do?
