Default Linux dullard seeks advice.....

Ok,

First off, I am a complete Linux dunderhead, so please excuse the base, elementary nature of the question.

I want to learn linux, but I am not comfortable enough putting it on my main machine. I have a laptop that I can put Red Hat 8 on. My questions is, will my PCMCIA D-Link DFE-670TXD NIC card work nativly? Whenever I see the instructions for Driver install under linux I get this pounding migraine (and I don't even run it yet!). Is it going to be a chore to get Red Hat up and running on a laptop?

If the PCMCIA junk is going to be difficult, does anyone have a link to doc's that would help clarify the process before I jump head long into it??

Thanks fellas!
