There is no simple way yet to get that card working. No matter what, you are going to have to compile drivers, so first lets make sure you have a compiler, and just for the heck of it, the kernel source code. From a command line, what happens with this:
Also, is there anything in the directory /usr/src/linux?
There are three sets of drivers that cover prism2 chipsets, you've probably found the linux-wlan project drivers, which are a complicated mess. There is also the orinoco project and the prism2 project. I'm currently replying to a SuSe user in a different thread who is trying the newest orinoco drivers to see if they cover this card. If not, I really doubt the prism2 project does, so its probably wlan-linux.
