Actually the question about software was referring to Windows 7 ?

What kind of software/drivers do you use to make it work ? :)=20

My card has finally arrived, so I started to experiemtn with it, at first I
just plugged in into the top slot, the next next to HALF-mini-PCI, and the
system just does not see it at all, is this normal ?=20

I guess im gonna have to try to plug it into another slot then=20
