USB wireless device

I'm running Yellow Dog 4.0.1 on a PPC chip.
Basically, I own a Netgear WG111v2 USB wireless dongle and want to make it... work.
I'm new to Linux so I wasn't sure what to do, can anyone help?

I can't guarantee anything...but look into Ndiswrapper( This is what I use for my built in Wifi card. It basically wraps the windows driver and uses it(I don't do a very good job explaining it, it basically uses the windows driver fo the card).
