My setup is the same, although I run RH 7.3.
You should be able to patch the orinoco drivers with orinoco-0.13e-patch.diff and then install the drivers. You also 
require the kernel source to be installed.

Once you have installed the drivers, issue this command "iwpriv eth0" and look to see if there is a line with monitor. 
If so your in business.

I'm looking for advice on running AirSnort and Kismet on Red Hat 9 with an
Orinoco Gold.  I tried to flash my firmware down to the 7.52 level as
recommended by the AirSnort website, but the firmware utility reports "no
wireless card driver found" on my XP notebook.  So, I'm wondering if anyone
has used AirSnort and Kismet successfully with a firmware flashed up to the
8.72 release?  The AirSnort website mentions 8.10 is likely a problem, but
I'm hoping 8.72 will magically work.  ;) 

I'll try it later today anyway, but if anyone has advice before I jump in,
it would be much appreciated.  Last time I tried to get AirSnort running on
a Red Hat 9 notebook I totally killed it somehow after all the driver
patching and was never able to get wireless to work on that laptop again,
until a fresh install of the OS.
