Did it ask you for a root password? If it didn't then you where in the wrong place. There should be a place where it's just networking, then it will ask for a root password, because you need root privliges to do anything. Once there, it should show all your networking devices- that it has drivers for. If you go in, and it doesn't see the wireless card, then you don't have any drivers for it, and must obtain them from the manufacture Web site, or another site which has a driver, for your distro, for that specific device. What distro is it? Ubuntu? Mephis? Knoppix? Other?
