I have the the MA311 card in my FC2 box. In FC1 kudzu recognized it no
problem and since I upgraded to FC2 I still have no problems.
Keep an eye on the drivers they have work
well with this card. Also usually on first boot after the install kudzu
will pick up new hardware. I would say go for the install.
