    ***SOLVED***

    Finaly i solved it!
    And I want to help other people with same problem.
    You can download madwifi drivers (google it) cd in madwifi directory and run make, make install. Then type:

    modprobe wlan
    modprobe ath_pci
    modprobe ath_hal

    Now you can type iwconfig to configure your wireless card!

    Have fun

    hi, Help please,

    I got a RH9.0 installed, and I have a SS1024 PCI wireless network adapter.
    I downloaded the driver from www.linux-wlan.org, but it requires the kernel src tree.
    How can I set it up?

    Thanks,
    Hill

    Install the kernel-sources* RPM from your RH 9 disks.
