You could do it any time-in chroot, right after you reboot, once you've gone throught BLFS, etc. Just follow the instructions on the ndiswrapper home page.

checkinstall

thx im actually just about to start installing packages in chapter 6 and i had another question:
if i install checkinstall and pkgtools into /tools can i use that as a package management system? i think that would be the easiest thing to do because then you could upgrade and remove things easily. hopefully someone will respond before i go ahead and do it. it takes a while to install on this sempron64.
