Gosh Doug,

I think I would plug it into another machine.
I have a pcmcia Linksys wireless card on my laptop with jaunty, and 
there are no issues. (ancient ibm a21m stinkpad..runs great! 
750-mhz/512mb ram)
I did have to install the ndiswrapper drivers to make it work, but, even 
before installing the driver, the presence of the card, at least, was 
listed in pcmcia devices connected to the machine (ie. it was detected).

good luck,

free/open source software
tcl yer os with a feather...
