belkin wireless card wont work in redhat 8

Hey, I've got this belkin f5d6001 with a adm8211 chip on it and i'm trying to get it to run in redhat 8. At the admtek site they have an adm8211 driver made specifically for redhat 8 so i installed it. I have come VERY close to getting it to work but i aint surfin' yet. ive tried every network config program/script i know of from the console to gnome/k and everything almost checks out. the only thing that i think might be causing it is when i run the network configurator in K, it recognizes the card as "821" and makes it eth0 but when i select it and press edit, its totally blank. I think i need to put in values for IRQ, MEM, IO, IO1, IO2, DMA0, DMA1. If anyone knows what to put for these values, or they know that im completely off, please let me know.

This is a pci card? If so, you shouldn't really have to tell the system what those values (irq,mem, io, etc) are. I would suggest continuing to explore the config. Can you post (as root) ifconfig -a, iwconfig eth0, cat /var/log/messages | grep ADM, and the contents of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and /etc/sysconfig/network.

I got it. All i had to do was insmod -f 8211.o. I guess the self install doesnt do that on its own. After that, all i had to do was edit ifconfig and iwconfig. Thanks.
