wireless lan card supported by rh9?!

Due to change in regulations where I am living ("network cables in the dorm hallways are a fire hazard"), I need to install one of these fancy wireless network cards in my RH9 box.

Right now I picked up one of these Linksys/Broadcom cards (wmp54g), just to find out that it only works in windows and that the Linksys/Broadcom people according to different sources does not support (and will probably not support) Linux.

Luckily I can return this windows/linksys/broadcom card within 7 days, but I cannot figure out what other card to use.

So, simple question:

Can anyone recommend a wlan card, currently in stores, which will work with RH9 without too much hassle?

Thanks People!

Well you need an 802.11b or 802.11g card? I'd say stick with any Orrinoco Gold.
