installing a wireless adapter

aight.. here's the deal..

I'm a complete linux n00b, I've never tried it before, and I dont have any friends that uses linux, so no one can help me.. (except for you guys )

I've got a D-Link DWL-122 Wireless USB Adapter. I've plugged it in, now what? I tried inserting the isntallations CD, but nothing happens at all... what am I supposed to do next? oh yeah, I'm running Mandrake Linux...

once again, I am a complete linux n00b... so if you dont have the patience to help me out, just dont.. cause I'll probably ask a lot of stupid questions.
