Blitzz BWU613SB USB wifi driver not working


I'm still very much a newbie, I have a USB wireless kit and I cannot get it working under my Fedora 2 installation, it works in Windoze.

the driver cd included a linux driver but its very very vaguely documented
I tried to install it.

it says to check /var/log/messages and there is an entry at the bottom stating that a high speed USB device was found and assigned to 5.

I would like to run kismet, I installed it but I dont have the wireless card assigned to an eth* so I cant use it yet.

my eth0 is my ethernet.

oh, its a Celeron 1.8Ghz, 256Mb, 20GbHD Toshiba Laptop.

thanks in advance

I forgot to add that the chipset in the actual USB device os AT76C505.
I was part of the Blitzz BWK802 Netwave kit , heres their website http://www.iblitzz.com/
