Hello,

Have not used Linux in years, I have a Laptop with RedHat 9, I have a
couple different wireless cards,

Linksys WUSB11 USB and a notebook adapter

and a D-Link DWL-122

Is there an easy way to make one of these work without having to
recompile a kernel or rewiting the OS, possibly some detailed
instructions? If not what is the best wireless card to use that will
go in easy?

Also is there a way to have a GUI interface for a wireless card in
Linux?

I am able to run Redhat 9.0 and Fedora Core 2 under VMWare. The VMWare
virtual drivers uses the host OS drivers, ie Windows.

Thanks for the response David! Are you using VMWare Workstation or
Server? I have Workstation and I was duel booting XP and Redhat 9 but
is that will work I will remove Redhat and use the diskspace for XP

Hi Tory,

I am using VMWare workstation. I used to dual boot but not anymore since
I started using VMWare. Now I can easily switch between both Windows and
Linux and have both of them running simultaneously.
