For that matter, how would you use a wireless card without an OS ?

OK so I missed one part of the post. I do aplogize for my error. I do have an appointment for remedial reading classes down at the local school for a refresher course. I think I need it....

Thanks guys. But I heard there is a floppy disk for this situation to allow this computer to access to the local network as a temporary network driver. Is that right?
Thanks again

Then you have to create a network boot disk. There are several tutorials on the web, but I've never gone through the creation process from scratch. Last I checked, it's not as simple as a one-file download like a boot CD. At the very least you need to know something about the topology and configuration of the network.
