Unhappy Help! Onbooard Geforce2/Linksys WNIC ( Asus A7N266 MoBo and a WMP11 7.2 WNIC

This is my first time even trying to use slackware. But I wanted to know if anyone out there has had any luck getting a wireless linksys WMP11 7.2 to work. If not, I have a spare USB adapter laying around. But I would think that would be worse.

I also wanted to know if there was any known issues with using an Asus A7N266 MoBo. It has onboard video, a Geforce2.

Thanks for any info you can give me.

If the old USB adapter is 1.1 compliant its the exact same speed limit as 802.11b, networking-wise anyway.

The WMP11 v2.7 if I've got my grouching straight, is the bridgecom card Linksys is now putting out as a desktop instead of the intersil prism2 chipset and hasn't got linux support. Probably won't change anytime soon.
