A company named Linuxant (www.linuxant.com) has a product called a driver loaded that will allow you to use your Windows XP wireless card drivers under Linux. You can try it for free for 30 days and pay $20 for an unlimited license. I use it with my Linksys wpc54g card and it will also work with the Linksys wpc11 version 4 card. It is well worth the $20 dollars to have my wireless card working under Linux. The driver loaded is reported to work with just about any wireless card. Under Fedora, for some reason, I must remove and re-insert my wireless card after booting to get it to connect to my Linksys access point. I didn't need to do that under Redhat 9. A minor nuisance. Other than that, it works perfectly. I am not an open source purist. I don't mind having to pay $20 to get my wireless hardware running under Linux.
