You may be SOL as 802.11b wir

You may be SOL as 802.11b wireless was not exactly a common technology back in the 8.6 era... http://www.penmachine.com/techie/airport1400.html has a few good resources but doesn't mention your card specifically.

Perhaps some Google searches would be a good place to start? If you can't find a driver specifically for your card, knowing what the chipset is may help you find another driver that is compatible.

Versiontracker has the Orinoc

Versiontracker has the Orinoco drivers.
You might have luck with them, as IIRC the Avaya, Orinoco and WaveLan cards were all the same OEM.
