Can someone forward directions for installing the Linux driver for my new
SparkLan WCFM-100 CF card in my Zaurus SL-5500? The Linux directions
for SparkLAN's website were confusing...They mentioned a Linux Source
Tree must be downloaded from www.kernel.org but www.kernel.org had
many different downloads available but none marked Linux Source Tree!
What am I missing? Will this card work in a Zaurus SL-5500?

this should just be plug and play if it is an 802.11b adaptor

if it still dosent work then you may have to edit a pcmcia conf file or two,

might also want to tell us which distro you are running (better yet put it in your tag)

The card is an 802.11g card. User ztep has built a driver for it, but it depends on what distro you are using. http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=21081 perhaps he can help you.
