Installing Belkin USB Network adapter?

It looks like the Belkin Wireless USB Network Adapter is not 'recognised' by the Mandrake 10 c (Downloaded version) installer. The Hardware manager (?) promouses it as an unknown USB device.

Specifically, the model is F5D6050. As I am a compelte n00b, I have no idea where to get drivers, or even how I go about 'installing' this... and of course without internet access on the machine, it makes for a very frustrating night... I'm posting from work

Please don't make me put my WinXP HDD back in my machine...

Can ANYONE help me? I'm afraid I might even need help on how I go about installing this driver/device too. I have no friends with Linux to fall back onto, so it's all down to the community with me for help...

ANYTHING (Even 'forget it, it won't work, go buy a blah-blah') is appreciated!

From my own digging around. It looks like I might have some luck with these drivers??? (There are two links in this, both point to 'drivers')...

However, if I put them onto a floppy (formatted on xp) will Mandrake be able to read it?

...and if yes, any idea how I 'install them'? There is a 'scripts' folder containing a file ''... do I 'run this'? can someone tell me how to 'run' the install?

...well, this IS the newbie forum right?
