[driverloader] Driver loaded, now what?

Warning, my knowledge of most SysAdmin tasks on Linux sucks. I'm
trying to get better.
So I got my driverloader business working, and I uploaded and licensed
the driver for my Belkin wirleess card. Everything looks good from the
driverloader end, and it's mapped to device eth0.
My question is, now what? I tried using the redhat network
configuration tool but I wasn't able to get it working. It kept
spitting back an error:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06):
SET failed on device eth0: Invalid argument
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A):
Invalid argument "s".
The network itself works fine for my other computers on the network so
it's got to be my setup. Does anyone have an idiot's guide (ie: step
by step) on how to set up this part of it?
Here's my configuration info if it helps:
Wireless interface name: eth0
MAC address : 00:11:50:14:DD:95
Device instance : PCI-0000:02:09.0-1814:0201-1799:700A
Device driver : rt2500
Description : IEEE 802.11g Wireless Card
License owner : jason at terrapinjay.com
License key : 89-E5-01-AB-6F-SS
License status : OK (Expires 2005-05-09)
iwlist scan returns:
eth0 Failed to read scan data : No data available
(it's set to use channel 6, which is what the AP is configured for)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
