wireless driver for atheros card

I bought a new Atheros 5002X 108 M ABG Super AG WLAN Mini PCI Card IBM at auction on ebay.

The card didn't come with drivers.

I'm running w2k/fedora core 4 on my laptop.

On the Windows side, I can't find a (working) driver for the card. I found a bundled driver/utility at drivers.com, but, when I installed it the utility says it will automatically detect when the card is plugged in.

The card is plugged in and the utility does _not_ detect it. It comes up in Device Manager as a generic "Ethernet device" under "Other devices", when plugged in.

I've tried taking the card out and plugging it back in (as well as rebooting the laptop). I think the utility may be a little too 'smart' for its own good, and since W2k doesn't recognize the card, the utilty doesn't, either. Any suggestions on finding just the driver to install manually?

Don't know if this will help, but here are some drivers for the Atheros

5002 from Netgate. (Their 5004 drivers are good):
