To my knowlwedge ther is not a 2.6 driver for this yet.

I just found what looks like a good workaround for you though:

I wasted several days trying to get an 8180 card working under Fedora Core 2.4 before I gave up and tried nsidwrapper and had it working in less than a hour. I had to compile from scratch.  And I had to reboot after doing everthing as modprobe woudn't load ndiswrapper at first. Using the .rpm version didn't work  Everything you need to know is at http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/.
