Trying to get an Encore wireless cardbus to run.

I just started playing with Ubuntu and am interested in putting it on an old laptop of mine, I boot the live CD into the laptop and it loads great but, it won't recognize my wireless card in the PCMCIA slot. I checked the site for my card and they have a linux driver for the card. My question is this...

How do I go about getting the card to be recognized by Ubuntu so I have internet access? I'm not familure with loading drivers or getting hardware like that recognized in linux. Can someone help me out?

My card is a cheap Encore ENPWI-G2 Wireless-G Cardbus Adapter card that slips into the PCMCIA slot.

Thanks for any help in advance

I hope you're comfortable with command-line operations. The README.txt has instructions on how to build the driver, load it, and set up your internet connection.
