Question Wireless|how to make canyon card be recognized and work

I have a Canyon card (with antenna, for PC) - not pcmcia, for laptop *im not a hardware dude* and I have tried to make it work on previous versions of slackware, but I couldn't; and maybe thats why I didnt use it, really.
So can you tell me the steps I should try to make my net work?
I dont know what other info I should give you; the card has a CD with drivers for windows and redhat9, and thats it. I have used slackware with a cabletron (lucent) card (pcmcia, on laptop), without any other work for it but ifconfig commands, which rocked. But this card is not recognized and I hope its not impossible to make it happen
Have a nice day

Are those RH9 drivers binary? You could try installing them and seeing if they work. (Convert with rpm2tgz if it's an RPM.)

thanks both.
I have the RTL8180 Chipset, which is said on the website to be supported, so Im going to work on it.
And the other idea - good one, but the drivers for redhat9 are not binaries.
