[driverloader] Belkin F5D7000 and Red Hat 9

I'm trying to get the Belkin F5D7000 card to work with Linux Red hat 9
(v2.4.20-8) using the driverloader. Driverloader installed fine, I
think. But in the configuration screen (at localhost:18020) the pci card
is not recognized. I notice that the card is not powered up (no LED)
under Linux as it is automatically under Windows XP. I assume this is
the problem? How do I tell Linux to power up the card? Seems like a
chicken-and-egg scenario. I haven't done any recompilation of the kernel
as I've seen suggested on various newsgroups, but this wasn't specified
at all on the linuxant install documentation page. Also, it could be
that wireless tools isn't installed. (Why is there no mention of how to
do this on the driverloader install doc page??) For example, iwconfig
isn't recognized. But when I try to install the wireless-tools rpm from
my linux cd I get the message that wireless-tools is already installed.
So, any light shed on this would be most appreciated. btw, I'm a Linux
newbie so please fully explained all tips.
