A few people report it working with Linux driver, most users seem to have resorted to ndiswrapper.

Hmh ... at this point you can believe him and try Linux driver ... or you can search for second opinion ... like here: http://hardware4linux.info/component/20872/

Stuck ... you have to start somewhere. How about going to www.google.com/linux and searching for 'mandriva ndiswrapper' keywords?
