SMC wirless card Red Hat 9


I recently bought a SMC 2635W EZ connect wireless card. Drivers for Xp were included but not for Linux. I have a 5100 Inspiron Dell Laptop with an XP/RH 9 partition. The card works fine for XP. However, I have not been able to get the appropriate drivers for the RH 9 partition. I contacted SMC, but they tell me they do not have drivers for RH 9, only 8.

Any suggestions on things I could do, apart from downgrading my Linux OS to RH 9?

I went to the site, but it doesnt help me with the SMC drivers. I need to be able to get SMC drivers that are compatible with RH 9. SMC says they dont have them for RH 9 yet. Does anyone have an equivalent for these drivers?
