Question anyone know how to get online useing linksys wusb wireless G adapter and Mepis os?

Im useing the mepis livecd on my laptop. Ive got the adapter plugged into usb port But i cant get online. Is it because the os is on cd and not on the harddrive or do i still need to do some configuring? can someone point me in the right direction? where do i go from desktop to configure and how?

I have win 2000 on laptop already useing wireless adapter. dont much care about screwing things up. Plan on installing mepis if i can get it configured

most usb wireless devices need you to load the windows driver using ndiswrapper
not sure how you would do that with a livecd
also, what is the make/model of the usb device?
what does lspci and lsusb say about the device
