Netgear MA101 USB Wireless Adapter Installation

Hello everyone,
I installed Mandriva 2007 Official with PowerPack on my system but I can't get my wireless card to work. I am using GNOME. I understand that the driver has to be installed, but I can't find a driver on nor anywhere else via Google. I have tried to go to the Mandriva Control Center-->Network And Internet-->Setup an New Interface and use the wireless card. I then go to Mandriva Control Center-->Network And Internet-->Wireless Connection, but I don't see my Netgear adapter there. Any suggestions on this?

OK. I'm trying to understand the information in
I dont know what this means:
To get the the most up to date source code for the driver, check out the code from the CVS tree using:
cvs login
cvs co atmelwlandriver

If you don't have CVS installed, download a snapshot instead.
If you want to just browse the source code, use the CVSWeb Interface at
When I go to a shell and I change to "su" and I type in
cvs login
I get:

[root@localhost /]# cvs login
Logging in to
CVS password:
Do I need some sort of account to get past this?
