I am unsure if there are linux drivers for hawking wireless cards. For that you'll have to use google or wait until someone with one replies. In the meantime, you can use ndiswrapper and windows drivers. there are a lot of tutorials on ndiswrapper online, just search for them. It is a pretty straight forward process in setting it up.
