Question Network Install via a WPC11

I am trying to install linux on my laptop, but the only network access I have on the machine is a WPC11 Wireless Network Card. Is it possible to do a network install using this card?

I tried using the pcmciaadd.img driver disk offered by redhat, but it does not support the WPC11 or anything even close to it.

I am looking to install RedHat or Mandrake on the machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I was able to get this done using the pcmcia.img Mandrake install disk. I also had to disable the encryption on the wireless network for the duration of the install, but it will be turned back on as soon as the install is complete

Thank you for posting that this worked. I am about to do exactly the same thing on an old laptop for which I do not have a CD drive.
