Hello,
I have installed Linux 2008 but then I have a problem cause Linux cannot instal my Wireless card's driver with the CD...
This may seem to be a dum question or something... but then I don't have any network and so, no internet so I'm unable to download a linux version of the driver...

Thank you

A few questions to make this go easier for you?

1) What distro of Linux are you using (Mandrava, Fedroda,etc)?

2)Make and model of you wireless card?

Not knowing the answers to the above questions makes it kinda of tough but, Mandriva Linux 2008 includes a native driver for Broadcom wireless adapters. Mandriva will prompt you for a Windows driver, and offer to try and find it from your Windows partition. I have never used this option but it may worth a try.
