Summary: not sure if it was service pack 3 causing errors, but the driver would not automatically install. I went in and manually installed the driver and a compatibility error popped up, which I guess stopped it from automatically installing. I ignored it and everything finally installed fine.

Pros: had this thing less then 24 hours but it is like the others said: "it works great". using card on Kubuntu 6.06.1 LTS (Dapper Drake) Linux, plugged in laptop before turning on, set the wepkey in network settings, used kwifimanager to connect, and got on the web right away in less than 5 minutes, n...
