How to get Broadcom 802.11b card working?

I've heard this card isn't supported under linux, however that people are getting it working ndisrapper... I am running debian, and I can't find it in apt-cache....

I found the website but it was confusing, I couldn't find a straight tar.gz file with the source, and the .deb package is just the source.

I wonder if anyones ever encountered a tutorial for ndisrapper?

The program is called 'ndiswrapper' and not 'ndisrapper'. Perhaps you can find it now, or go to the sourceforge website.

Here is the HCL on the sourceforge website:
