Personally I use a netgear MA311 card in my desktop, and it has "just worked" 
under every version of Linux I've tried, including SUSE 9.1.  I suggest 
rather  than pulling your hair out to get any old card working, just get a 
card off ebay that you know will work right off the bat.  

Netgear actually provides linux drivers for a lot of their products, also.  If 
you get an older card that has a "Prism 2" chipset, you're almost guaranteed 
it will work.
