    I have the following "vintage" computers:
    -Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT
    -IBM Thinkpad 380E

    The idea is to use these computers as terminals, connecting wirelessly to a
    server running LTSP (

    In other words, I need a little help choosing a pcmcia 16 bits wireless card
    that runs also under linux.

    Thanks in advance,

    lie - cardbus = 32bit, he asked for a 16 bit card
    benito look for a PRISM 2 PCMIA card - best under Linux, 16bit
    for example demartec (200mW = most powerfull pcmcia ever :))

    You too! :)
    Of course, you should never trust an ebay sellers description, but
    backing it up by searching google for the card name and linux generally
    gives some pages you can look at to check.
