Unhappy Cannot use Wi-Fi

I have Puppy Linux 4.00 installed on a Compaq Armada M300 with 4 GB hard disk space and 128 MB RAM.

I cannot get my PCMCIA 802.11G cardbus to work!
I cave an Airnet AWN108 108mbps wireless 802.11G PCMCIA cardbus.
The drivers for this are built in to Ubunto variants--I tried installing Xubuntu, but that just sucks up my resources.

I just set up Puppy Linux today. Could someone please help?

Distribution: Switched to regualr Ubuntu, because I don't like KDE4, at all. Looks like vista on crack.....

I've found fluxbuntu to be a little faster, though still not as fast as puppy, though Vector Linux-Light edition comes close, and would almost certainly work out of the box with your hardware....let us know how it goes.....
