Trying to get my USB network card to work with Linux

Ok, heres the deal...

Yesterday i installed Unix on my laptop and surprisingly everything works perfect.....exept my network card

i have a linksys USB network card (basically a thing you plug into a USB port that is now your NIC card and i connect it to my router)

But i have no idea how i would go about setting up drivers for this USB driver...

Anyone know if its possible? and if so, where i could start reading up on how to do it?

thanks, steve

well it depends on what unix you use bsd linux true64 bla bla
and unix will probe it you need to tell it what to do

i find that if i got to my control panel and goto the usb driver and add them the system will see it i added a new video card and usb dev to it a worked like magic but i use Iris,Lycrios you can get any unix linux os here @

good luck
