Netgear WiFi and Fedora Core 5 drivers

Hi, so I've got Fedora core 5 working on a desktop PC and now I want to WiFi it, preferably using an existing spare Netgear WG311v2 adapter or even buy a new WG311T.

I've searched for drivers but no success. I read that the v2 version uses the ACX111 chips ( not Atheros ) but the driver download link I found said "Not finished" (as in not finished development).

Any help with this or an alternative good route would be welcome.

Thanks JP
