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.

Yeah in fact the Microsoft card was the only card that was guarenteed to work with 98.  Thanks for your help though.
