Ralink chips are some of the easiest to work with. I'm using a Linksys WMP54G v4. The new 2.6.24 kernel has several modules included that should make things easier; I saw Prism, Ralink, Broadcom, and a crapload of others. Too bad it doesn't like my SB600.

My sister's laptop has a ralink, but it doesn't connect to networks unless the SSID is broadcast (that word doesn't have an -ed at the end). It won't ever let me manually connect to the wireless network.

It will depend on the module that's being used (rt2400, rt2500, rt2570,rt61, rt73); my Airlink101 rt61 performs piss poor, but my Linksys rt2500 is a dream to work with. Most current mainstream distros use 2.6.22 and 2.6.23 kernels, which don't have native Railink support; most of these distros instead use their own customized serialmonkey rt2x00 drivers. It will depend on the distro, but chances are that they all use different (older) versions of the driver. This driver is fully incorporated into the 2.6.24 kernel.

I think hers is the rt2500.

So are airlinks compatible with Linux? I see those at fry's, and they're dirt cheap. But I never looked up if they were natively supported in Linux. I was thinking about a USB airlink adapter, either G or N.

Any wireless card that is atheros based will work

Depends on the chipset they use. I tried a AWLH3026T and it performs poorly in Ubuntu; the card uses the rt61 chip, and Ubuntu uses an old, messed up rt61pci module, which gives me about 1/4 the total bandwidth I should be getting. I also tried AWLL3055, the USB adapter with the 10dbi directional antenna; this one uses a Zydas chip and works really well in every distro I have tried (using 2.6.22 kernels); works out of the box at full speed. Also tried a newer AWLH3028, but that one uses some Realtek chip, and the only way to get it working is with ndiswrapper.

Does anybody want to help me get my printer to work? I went into Linux Foundation and found the drivers for my printer but I dont know what I'm supposed to do with it. T_T

On another note, my Sound Blaster card wasnt working at all for some reason but when I connected my speakers to the integrated audio, it was working just fine.
THe weird thing is, the integrated sound card never worked for me in Windows XP and now its the other way around.

I couldn't get my printer to work because I didn't any drivers installed for it. It was actually pretty easy to get my printer to work. I just went into Add/Remove and installed an application called HPLIP Toolbox.
