Ok people, Ive officially converted myself from to the dark side, windows is no longer on my machine. Now my problem is, Im running Xandros Desktop Linux, and I cant get the Kernel to see my motorola wireless PCI network card, yet the PCI manager ID's it, as well as hardware detection. The network manager just wont let me access it as a network resource! Yes Im a noob with linux, but this is annoying, Im having to use the old laptop to connect to the net!
Thanks

don't feel so bad. Getting wireless G cards to work with linux is still shakey. They just aren't as well supported as the wireless B series. Majority of wireless G cards use the broadcom chipset. And while the 2.6 kernel suppositely supports the broadcom chipset, I only hear a few success stories. So I say give it a while and we should see native support eventually.
