It seems that your card is not supported on RH9. My experience is that
if some hardware does not work out of the box on Linux, I have a hard
time getting it work.

On similar note, I bought a new ethernet card recently, which had
drivers missing on Linux. I could make it work using ndiswrapper
(which allows you to use Windows XP drivers on Linux).
