Sorry.  According to Intel they will have no Windows 7 driver:

What if I have an Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection or Intel® PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection installed on my PC?
The Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection and Intel® PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection are not supported on Windows 7*.

if this is a laptop (and I have a few Lenovo's with this adapter) you should be able to get a driver from the manufacturer IF they support Windows 7 on that hardware, not all do.  Intel certainly have listed this chipset as obsolete, and the Vista driver was the last release.

If its comes to it, you might get away using a Vista driver, however running the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor is always recommended before retro-fitting Win 7 to older hardware.  Some laptops have their wireless NIC as a clip-on daughter-board, which can sometimes removed from the main board via a removable plate on the underside of the laptop.  Upgrade potential there.

Vista and XP driver available from here - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Wireless+Networking&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+WiFi+Products&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+PRO%2fWireless+2200BG+Network+Connection
