problems installing wireless card

i am having troubles installing my wireless card. its a netgear wg311v3. i am using suse 10.0 and ubuntu 5.1 so if i can install it on either would be fine. i am very new to linux ive used windows and want to get familiar to linux but its a bit hard to look for help and know what ur doing without the net. ive heard u can use programs like ndiswrapper to install it but not using linux b4 i dont know how to use it. anyway if anyone can explain to me how to install this card would be great keeping in mind im am quite new to linux so be gentle with me.

thank you.

Welcome to LQ

Sorry I am short of time to answer

item 3 N
The good news is that it will work

Look in LQ bookmark for rute, also for newbie for some good learning ref.

Newbie's Top Ten Commands

I suggest you read a few threads in the wireless forum.
You may learn from one on suse 10.0 + wusb54gs
or try to google for your model + suse or anything else

The learning curve is steep, especially trying to install a wifi card straight away.

See if the homework above does help, and then formulate a question
about something you do not understand

Sorry must go now
