Question Proxim ORiNOCO 802.11 a/b/g Silver PCMCIA Card drivers

Howdy Gurus,

I just got a Proxim ORiNOCO 802.11 a/b/g Silver card for a really good price. It works great under Windows XP Professional as I am posting this message using it. However, under RedHat 9.0, I am unable to get the sucker to play with me.

Using cardctl ident shows that the card uses an Atheros 5001 chipset. I haven't been able to locate a good, fully working driver for this chipset. I am hoping that some of you will know the right direction to steer me in. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

TIA, Paul

This is a pretty complete guide for any wireless cards. A good reference if you can't find a specific mini-Howto for your card.
