You can probably use the windows driver under linux using ndiswrapper. There is an installation guide here:

Debian specific instructions are here:

It is not a trivial thing to do unfortunately. If you read the instructions very carefully, you should be able to get ndiswrapper installed. There is a report of a zyxel card running on linux using the windows driver off of the CD on the driver list page. Hope that helps! This is one area where Linux lags behind. It took me a long time to get my wireless card working.
