    Sounds like this site gives support to your card: http://acx100.sourceforge.net/

    Why don't you try it out, and tell us how it went?

    Good luck

    I have the same card and have gotten it to work (sort of) on Fedora Core 3. You might check out this site - these are the instructions I used to get mine working.

    I've run into 2 problems:
    1. My linux machine locks-up shortly after I start the wireless card up and try to access my network. (I've heard this is only a problem with the 2.6.11... kernel but I have not tested with anything below yet.)

    2.After compiling and installing the driver upon the next reboot of my machine it would hang or lock up at 'detecting new hardware' during boot up. I had to edit the grub.conf file and remove the RHGB parameter then it launched kudzu and detected my card. Once it detected it I was able to put the RHGB back into the grub.conf and it booted up OK.
