Problem with Hawking HWU54D fc3 drivers

I currently purchased a Hawking HWU4D usb High Gain directional antenna for a long range wireless network that I have set up. I have a machine that is dual booted with XP and FC3. I was curious to see if anyone new where I could locate some drivers for this piece of hardware or if it will work under ndiswrapper. I have tried to load the zd1211u.sys driver under ndiswrapper but I cannot seem to get it to communicate with the antenna. Any suggestions? Oh yeah, and I have already loaded a kernel with a larger kernel stack than 4 so win drivers will work and my machine does not freeze. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Guys.

AFAIK the HWU54D uses the Envara WIND502 chipset and Envara is no more and there is no Linux driver. I could be wrong but as far as I can see the zd1211 driver does not have much to do with it.
I downloaded the driver from Hawking in an attempt to get it to work under ndiswrapper but I never got anywhere. I am not sure if it will ever work.
