Question Linux Drivers for NETGEAR WiFi Adapters

Dear Linux Experts,

I am a new user to Linux OS, currently I am migrating all of my PC's to Linux different Platforms (Redhat 6.2, Mandreak 9 and 10.1) and I have Netgear WG311,WG511,WG311T,WG511T,WG111. and could not get my adapters installed as NETGEAR does not provide Linux drivers with the hardware. I am also using WG302 access point and all this hardware use to work great with XP and 2000.
Please help me with the step by step installation as you people are already expert on Linux.

Thank's in Advance
