Hi,

One crude way of finding out if you card is supported is to look at the
output of lspci and grep through the kernel sources of the latest kernel.
This lets you know if your card is supported by the latest upstream linux
kernels.

As a downside, this might be easier said than done if you are a newbie. The
solution is to post the output of the command lspci when asking questions
about PCI hardware compatibility on a LUG list.

An easy way to do this might be to copy the output from output.txt into your
mail.
#lspci -n > output.txt

You are likely to get more prompt and useful answers if you hit the lists
and chatrooms armed with this information.

Regards,
Manas
