Orinoco Gold wireless PCI card (8482-WD) drivers for Fedora?


I found the links for the PCMCIA drivers, but I'm not so sure those would work here. If in fact they will, let me know.

If there are no drivers available, can I trick Fedora by configuring it under a different manufacturer/model?

I like this card and don't want to give it up. It works perfectly when running in Windows mode. I need network access on this machine, but the only way is via wireless. I would prefer wired but that is simply not an option at this point.

Any help is most appreciated. Thanks in advance.

-Kyle

*edit: If necessary, I can use my other Linux box to download and copy any necessary drivers to CD. However, before I can use the Updater, I need to have interweb access. It's a nasty catch-22.

In the Red Hat Linux Bible (FC1 edition) setting up Orinoco cards is explained. I can't check the book until I get home tonight, if no-one else has posted a solution by then I can post what the book says.

Sorry, my bad. (brainfart)

The book only describes setting up Orinoco PCMCIA cards with a PCI adapter, not an actual PCI Orinoco card.

Sorry again
