Does a driver for 3COM OfficeConnect Wireless 11g Adapter exist?

I've gotten a 3COM OfficeConnect Wireless 11g Adapter (3CRWE254G72). I want to switch from Windows to Linux RedHat 9.0, but 3COM does not provide drivers for this adapter. If anyone have solution to this problem I would be grateful.

You have the options of either using ndiswrapper, which you need to compile into your kernel (and thusly isn't as newbie-freindly) or you can use a driver from Linuxant. They have precompiled modules and use the windows drivers for your card. You can download a 30 day trial to ensure that it works, then it only costs you $20USD for a permanent license to continue using it. They also have very good installation instructions on their website.
There may be other options as well so anyone feel free to add!

Sorry, I had to delete this whole was just kinda flying off the top of my head. As it turns out I was thinking of Mandrake 9.2, not RH9. Sorry if this cause you any trouble.
