    i really dont know if this will work, but you could give it a go. download and install ndiswrapper, either via urpmi ndiswrapper or going to sourceforge and downloading it. and then load the windows driver to use that card.

    Once again, let me reiterate, i do not know if this will work, but i think it is worth a shot.

    Ok then, copy the windows driver from your cdrom onto your hard drive and then tell ndiswrapper the location of the driver, it should then load it and you should be in theory be able to configure it.

    see the ndiswwrapper homepage for more info.

    now you configure it, goto MCC -> hardware and click on the hardware option, select your network card and select configure module.
