Question n00b needs Linux driver for Netgear FA310TX REV-D2

I am attempting to learn Linux by using it. I am putting the latest version of Slackware on my box, but before i do so, i need to get the right driver for my networking card, a Netgear FA310TX REV-D2, so I can use the computer for what I do all the time... surf the internet. Any help would be greatly appreciated... I'm rather new at all this.

The FA310TX REV-D2 has a Tulip chipset, which has been supported by the Linux kernel for a long time. Any distribution you care to choose will detect and use the correct driver automatically.

I will warn you that my own experience with Tulip-based networking cards has not been good - in older kernel revisions than are available now the driver could often cause the card to send malformed TX data, so that the computer still couldn't get onto the network even when you had all the settings right. Maybe it's been fixed in the 2.6.x tree - let us know how you get on
It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion...
