Linksys WMP54G issues

I had an interesting problem today installing a WMP54G PCI Wireless Card in a Dell Dimension 2400. I didn't take the time to determine the exact cause of the issues, as I got it working, but the problem related to 2 possible issues.

It is possible that the card had difficulties functioning on both Slot 1 and 3 on this PC. Moving it to slot 2 eventually allowed it to install and function properly. Secondly, when the card was screwed into the backplane, the rear of the card would become unseated from the PCI slot.

I am writing this here in an effort to head off any problems if you are working with a similar card.
