WEP cracking with auditor live cd doesn't find wireless card?!!!!!!

I just finally finished downloading the auditor linux os live cd and burned it and have loaded it up to try some WEP cracking(i'm not cracking my neighbors networks, just my other routers). When i go into the konsole and type iwconfig, or try to find the wlan doesn't find it. I am running a us robotics PCI wireless MaxG card with the software/drivers installed in windows xp(my regular operating system). so how would i make it find the maxG card? to then let me go on to my wep cracking...i hope i get an answer because i need to be able to find the card in order to crack WEP

I'm new to linux so i need some help!
