Tried google?

http://tuxmobil.org/pcmcia_ci10489.html

There's also a hardware compatibility list here on LQ.org and this is the thread about your card:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...hp?product=706

To get in the list click Linux HCL in the site menu.

Next time reasearch if the card works before you buy it if you intend to use it on linux. Can save you some trouble from buying a card which isn't supported.

Got madwifi working. I just needed to install the right linux kernel. The default installation from the mandrake 10.1 DVD/CD's has version 2.4.xxx but when I do an update at startup, I get the 2.6.x version which is what is required. Things were smooth from there.
