Go back to RedHat 8.0 and install Kismet and AirSnort first.  After you
add the Gold card, flash it down to 7.52 and then run RedHat Update.
This has worked for me for both the Orinoco a/b Gold and the a/b/g Gold
cards.  This all else fails and you want to stay with RedHat 9, get the
Senao 200mW wireless card (with MMCX jacks).  I got this to work with
barely any effort and the open-range is incredible.

Subject: AirSnort and Kismet on Red Hat 9 with Orinoco Gold?

I'm looking for advice on running AirSnort and Kismet on Red Hat 9 with
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
wireless card driver found" on my XP notebook.  So, I'm wondering if
has used AirSnort and Kismet successfully with a firmware flashed up to
8.72 release?  The AirSnort website mentions 8.10 is likely a problem,
I'm hoping 8.72 will magically work.  ;) 

I'll try it later today anyway, but if anyone has advice before I jump
it would be much appreciated.  Last time I tried to get AirSnort running
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
until a fresh install of the OS.
