Angry Why is my USB Wireless Network card not working?

I am dual booting my computer using RedHat 9 and Windows XP. I am part of a wireless network which I connect to through a USB wlan card (planex gw-us11s). This operates perfectly while I am using windows however I am having trouble with linux. I know the chipset is RFMD+AMTEL. I have gone to the AMTEL driver website but they don't seem to have my network card listed, but I tried one of their drivers anyway and it didn't work.

Can anyone tell me where to find a suitable driver or a procedure of how to set up the USB wireless connection using RedHat 9? I'm very frustrated since I have been trying to get this working for a while now.

I hope someone can help me with this. Thanks,
