    iMac G3 Wi-Fi

    I just got a "new" iMac G3 (600MHz) from a professor who was throwing it away. I want to get wireless working. I just got an AirPort card and adapter from eBay, but after I installed it, it's not even detected (I'm using Xubuntu 6.06).
    I didn't expect this venture to be without trouble, so if someone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.
