Question I want to install/configure my wireless usb DWL -122 on Mandrake linux.

Hi, I have just installed Mandrake linux 10.1 on my pc. I have a DWL -122 wireless usb adapter on the compter. This adapter is the only way I can connect to the internet, so I am writing this through windows xp right now. I would greatly appreciate it if something could help me with some instructions on how to get on the internet. Because when I try to go to a website in konkerier ( I am not sure how that is spelt) I get an error saying " can't find the host". And I know it is because I have NO internet connection, because I get the internet through a wireless network with my DWL -122. How do I go about installing the usb adapter to the Linux OS. Because it works with Windows XP but I don't know how to install / configure it on Linux.

Waiting for some help,

To sum it all up:

Instructions on how to install/configure the wireless adapter.
