    What is a PCI 2.2 Slot?

    Hi

    I am about to purchase a Linkseys WMP54G wireless PCI adaptor card. Among the system requirements it says a PCI 2.2 slot is required. I have an ASUS A8N-VM motherboard which has 2 PCI slots and 1 PCI Express slot. There's no mention of any PCI 2.2 slots. I would like to know if it is possible for me to install this card. If anyone could give me some advice I would be grateful, I am new to this [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]
