Setting up my orinoco gold classic card


I was wondering if anyone could show me where I can get the drivers for my Orinoco Gold Classic wireless card. I was looking on the airsnort page, and I found out that there are new drivers that work on the CVS page (?), so I went there, but I was unable to find anything that I could download that might help me install a driver. All I could find were a bunch of individual source code files. Should I download them all? The CVS page I am talking about is here:
http://savannah.nongnu.org/cvs/?group=orinoco

There should be drivers shipped with your kernel.
The sources are incorporated to the kernel source tree, so you don't explicitly fetch them from anywhere unless you want newer versions.

(I have that exact same card myself)

Ok, Ive got the drivers installed, and when I have my card in iwconfig is showing me eth1 as having wireless extensions. I have associated it with my AP and entered my wep key, but fr some reason it is unable to connect. Are there any steps I am missing?

Have you setup your ip address and other settings (eg. with ifconfig)?
