I'm not sure if you're still working on this or not, but some more info would probably help.

I use Fedora so things may be a little different, but you could try lsusb (if you don't have it installed you can you `yum install usb-utils' or do a search for it).

After that, it will tell you some information about your usb card if it can see it.

I'm not sure if you've already had the card working in the past, if not then I'd use ndiswrapper, following the instructions and getting the driver they recommend (using the output from lsusb) to do the install.
