Wireless Networking Buy

I can't find a place where I can go to find out hardware compatibility for Mandrake Linux 10.0 Community. So I just wanted to know if someone here uses 10.0 and has a wireless PCMCIA card. I am looking for one under 20 dollars over the internet and want to make sure it's compatible.

You didn't specify 802.11b, g or a, so I'll assume b. If you can live with under $30, try this one. It should work fine with Mandrake.

Also, check the LinuxQuestions Hardware Compatibility List for cards that will work with Linux.
