This may seem like a silly suggestion....

You can go to this page:

http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/wireless-internet/poll-624-have-you-got-adaptor-work-yet.html

And see that 3 folks got it to work, 3 said no, 3 said almost.

Maybe you can contact the 3 that have it working and get an idea from them.

Worth a shot?
