I use a Dell Truemobile 1150, which is supposedly (according to the kind
folks at yahoo group linux-dell-laptops) a rebranded Orinoco Gold card. 
It works like a charm on RH9, automatically coming up with the
orinoco/orinoco_cs drivers.

You can get this card pretty cheap, try froogle.google.com.  BUT BEWARE
of the newer Truemobile 1180, which uses one of those
not-yet-supported-under-linux Broadcom chipsets.

hope that helps,
