    I'd probably get one of these.
    Buffalo PCMCIA G MIMO w/ Antenna conn.

    It's pretty cheap, has an antenna connector, and the reviews mention linux compatibility. I've also heard pretty good things about an orinoco card, but can't easily find a place to buy(well, except ebay...).

    Edit:
    With most any pc card you'll need a "pigtail" like this to connect it to a standard high gain antenna.
