problem installing wireless network card on Centos


i wanna configure my wireless card on my system plz help me out
i have centos 4 kernel 2.6.9-11.EL
my network card- netgear-WG311v3

i installed ndiswrapper
by
#wget http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/s...per-1.5.tar.gz
#tar -zxvf ndisrapper-1.5.tar.gz
# cd ndiswrapper-1.5


when i gave
#make distclean
it gives output like this

make -C driver clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/ndiswrapper-1.5/driver'
rm -rf ndiswrapper.ko ndiswrapper.o hal.o iw_ndis.o loader.o misc_funcs.o ndis.o ntoskernel.o ntoskernel_io.o pe_linker.o proc.o wrapper.o divdi3.o usb.o x86_64_stubs.o \

Install the kernel-devel rpm package. Then try again to install ndiswrapper starting from make distclean

FYI you might want to bring the system current, the 2.6.9-11.EL kernel is old and should be updated (kernel-2.6.9-42.0.3.EL is the latest available) along with all the other updates available.
