1. it seems supported. i googled for "ralink turbo wireless LAN card"
and they all point to it being realtek card. so i would presume using a
realtek driver would help.

2. screen size or resolution is not an issue. since you didn't mention
your laptop try going to linux-laptop.net and maybe you could find your
laptop brand there. i would also suggest checking our

hope this helps.

don't be afraid to ask again.


cheers
