A friend of mine was encouraging me to write about how I got my wireless card to work in Ubuntu. Unfortunately I didn't take notes and some of it was trial and error(lots of that). If I do it again I'll take some notes. I did find a few guides that were very helpful. One was through Ubuntu Documentation which gives an excellent tutorial on how to install and use Ndiswrapper to configure your wireless card. Another was through Ubuntuguide.org which had some excellent beginner stuff. I'm still enjoying Ubuntu and hope you do too!Good luck!
