   Ya know, the way to sell cards of the vendors would be to suggest the
ones that work w/o NDIS on this list....and every other Linux list you
can find.

   Right now I couldn't possibly afford a laptop, but things can and

   What kind of wireless card (say, the basic 11mps type) should I buy?

   Anyone?  Is there a series of decent gear?
