I have successfully installed mandriva linux on my tower but how can i tell if it has found my BELKIN F5D7000 wireless card and if it has installed a driver for it?

If it has not installed a driver does any one know where i can DL one from

thanks in advance

What happens when you try debian? Or any linux OS?

Are you booting from the CD? (Change BIOS settings)
