Easy question...Compatibility

For the orinoco_cs driver, which is included with the kernel, I think you 
want a Gold or Silver Orinoco card.  Check www.orinoco-wireless (or do a 
google if I'm wrong on the address) for information.

I don't know which drivers will be compiled on a stock linux distro, but 
the source is with the kernel if you're compiling it yourself.

Good luck,
