How to access windows Network and Internet from Linux

Hi, I am having Red Hat 9 and I have a Wireless D-Link AirPlusG+ DWL-G520+ 54Mbps 802.11g PCI card...Wow that was quite a description....anyway I have configured it in Windows(thanks to the drivers provided by D-Link) but I am not able to configure it in Linux and it looks that there is very less documentation available on this....anyway if anyone knows anythign on this than kindly tell me.....
By the way my question is that CAN I ACCESS INTERNET and NETWORK from linux....I mean can i run internet explorer or Firefox through Linux using say WINE or any software...what I want is that it can take sometime to configure that card on linux so is there anyother way that I can acces internet from Linux as I have "Internet" in Windows.....Thanks for reading this far...Thanking u in advance....With Regards...

You can not directly run Internet Explorer on Redhat 9 because Internet Explorer was designed for Microsoft operating systems.

However, there is a product called CrossOver Office which allows you to run some Windows based applications on Linux OS's.

You can find out more about CrossOver Office and purchasing it by
