I am looking for a WiFi card (802.11g) for my IBM ThinkPad Laptop with Windows 98 OS installed.  NOT WIN98SE.  Most of the cards I have seen don't indicate wether or not they are compatable with WIN98.  Are there any WIN98 users out there who know for a fact that a certain card WILL DEFINANTELY work?  I am using a D-Link DI-524 WiFi router with 128 WEP encryption, though that shouldnt matter.  Thanks a lot!!

From what I have seen, most all WiFi cards will only go as far back as Win98 SE.

Yeah, thanks.  I actually found a Microsoft WiFi card that is specifically compatable with 98.
