> All,

I have both an XP and ubuntu Linux desktop.  I would like to network them
using a wireless system.  I have been told that it is difficult to find
drivers for the Linux side and I should therefore hardwire the router to the
Linux box and use a USB adapter for the XP side.
I would prefer to do the opposite.  ie attach the router to the XP and have
the Linux box as a satellite. What hardware would you recommend to have the
Compaq XP as connected to the router and as adapter for the Dell Linux box

Would this combo work for hardwiring the Dell Linux box?

Belkin F5D7230-4 Wireless G Router - 54Mbps, 802.11g, 4-Port
the linux side

Belkin F5D7050 USB Wireless Adapter - 54Mbps, 802.11g, USB 2.0
for the XP side

Thank you
