How do I find what wireless cards are compatible with my ubuntu computer? Answered

        I have a computer that is running ubuntu that needs a wireless adapter.  I bought a Linksys wireless USB adapter, but ubuntu won't run the installation software.  It shows it as a drive that I can open, but I can't run the installation process.  I installed WINE, but am not sure if it will work for this application, although I am very new to WINE's use.  Recommendations on how to make this adapter work are appreciated, or, if it will not work then a recommendation to a website with a list of ubuntu-compatible wireless hardware is appreciated.  Thanks!
