I'm deffinetly out of my league for this question, but i can tell you that i have to use part of a DLL file for my wireless card, and what needed to happen was opening the file on a windows box, and then using the .sys file from it through another program (ndiswrapper), so, my guess is that you cannot.
But if i were you, i'd wait for someone else to confirm that.
good luck!

I'm not a developper at all -- but I can't stay silent!

I moved to Linux, to benefit from it's securety and to have an OPERATING SYSTEM on
my box and you will reinvent the wheel with rusty tools?!

Bad Luck!!
