Request for WPC11v4 "State of the Union"

Hi All,

I have some basic questions about the Linksys WPC11v4 on my Compaq Armada E500
laptop. I'm not a linux newbie, but I am a wireless newbie; I'm sure that these questions have been asked and answered, so I'm hoping that somebody can refer me to a place where I can find them:

First question: Is the Rtl8139 chipset the same as Rtl8180?

"cardctl ident" gives:
Socket 0:
no product info available
Socket 1:
product info: "Realtek", "Rtl8139"
manfid: 0x0000, 0x024c
function: 6 (network)

After reading around the internet, I'm confused about whether I even have a v4.

Second question: If Rtl8139 is _not_ the same as Rtl8180, what driver should I be using for this card? Where can I find the driver, and what software requirements should my system meet to use the driver? For what it's worth, I am currently running a nifty (B)LFS system with a 2.4.22 kernel and gcc version 3.3.1.

Thanks very much,
