You need to know the chipset of the card to know if it works with any Linux distribution in general as what the kernel provides drivers for are chipsets instead of brands and models (you do have hints with some drivers, though). And it can happen that many peripherals use the same chipset(s). Someone correct me if I'm wrong but you might have success with fairly recent adapters and in general the older the hardware the better the support — and old is generally expressed in months, not years.
