Using wireless card

Dell / Inspiron 4000

Specs: Windows ME, Celeron 600MHz/320MB RAM
No idea if this is even possible.

I reformatted and reinstalled Windows Me on this Inspiron 4000 (it came with Me, was upgraded to XP SP2, I restored to Me). I went to the Dell site and got the chipset and sound drivers. So far, its running perfect with everything i'm throwing at it.

I'm not planning to use this for internet much, but I put a Dell Wireless 1370 mini-pci in the slot, in exchange for a modem that was in there. I pulled the drivers from a generic driver site (the install failed, most likely because it was designed for XP), but upon manual install, it picked it up fine.

Now, I've messed a bit with ethernet networking on 98, but wireless on 9x, and networking on Me is completely foreign to me. I found a guide here:
that details how to set up 98/Me to connect to an old college wi-fi network. I thought it'd work for me, but the NDIS driver is unselectable in options.

Anyone know how to set up wireless on Me?

(Also, the card supports WPA2, which is what my network uses. If the software's gonna limit that, then I'll just put the modem back and use direct connection to the router)

Just a bit too reto

You have to get a wireless card with Win98SE/ME support. That card is for Win2K/XP.
