Wireless PC Card Not Working On Xubuntu 8.10

I recently installed Xubuntu 8.10 on my practically ancient Compaq Armada M300 (128 MB RAM, 12 GB HD). The installation with the alternate install CD went really smoothly. The only problem is that my Wireless PC Card (Encore ENPWI-G) is not working on it. When I used it when it ran Windows 2000, it worked just fine. Now, it won't even flash. What should I do in order to fix it, or should I buy another one and see if it will work on my laptop?

Also, I don't know where to put it so I just placed it here. If it's not in the suitable place, I'm sorry.
