modprobe can't find ndiswrapper


OK, I'm taking the challenge at the top of the newbie page, htis is my first post.

I just installed FC5 and I am trying to get my WPC54G nic card working using ndiswrapper.
I can get:
Code:
ndiswrapper -l
to respond with:
Quote:
lsbcmnds driver loaded-hardware present.
The
Quote:
How-To
I am going by says the next step is to run:
Code:
depmod -a
That takes several seconds to complete and seems to complete successfully.
The next command is:
Code:
modprobe ndiswrapper
.
It returns
"modprobe: Cannot find Module ndiswrapper"
I have a listing of a terminal session showing this if that will help. Keep in mind I am a newbie to Linux so don't assume I know anything!
If I run the command to show my hardware configuration the PCMCIA NIC shows up properly as a broadcom 4306.

HELP!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
