I don't know what chipset that card uses, but D-Link tends to use
Texas Instruments' 802.11g chipsets.  There is no open-source driver
for TI chips because TI won't release the data to the open-source
community (the buggers!).

You'll probably have to use ndiswrapper and the Windows driver from the
CD you got with the card.  ndiswrapper is available at:
