One way of acquiring the driver would be to use driversguide.com
You'll need to create an account (it's free) then search for Orinoco pc24e. I've just tried and there are drivers there for this card.

Check the windows version on each driver before downloading. I recommend you download 2 or 3 different ones in case the first one doesn't work.

Once you've downloaded a driver & extracted the files, look for an .exe file (often setup.exe or similar). If there is one, then run it. If there isn't an executable file for installing the driver, the look for a .inf file instead. If you see one of these, all you need to do is insert the Orinoco card & let the New Hardware wizard find it. When it asks for the driver, just browse to the folder containing the .inf file and click on it. The wizard should then tel you if it's found a compatible driver. If not, then try the next driver you downloaded.
