Unless you've got some reason to need the card inside the box-you
might think about a wireless bridge or gaming adapter. (I'm using a
netgear wge101 and it's OK- but I think there are some better ones out
there) You use the ethernet on the mobo and you can place the bridge
anywhere you need for good reception-and no issues getting wireless
cards to work with linux. In the future, if you need to expand to
other devices at that point- you can add a switch and not have to buy
other wireless devices- unless you're limited by bandwidth...  examine
your setup, might make sense for you.
