Seesm like no matter what I tray I don't have premission to do it. So I tried logging in as root and tinkered a bit but no luck getting a driver to work.
What kind of trouble are you running into with ndiswrapper? I switched about a year ago and ndiswrapper was one of the first things that i had to learn to use. Obviously that was a pretty rough intro to linux, but once you get it, you've got some experience already!
Can you post the code in that is the "problem" with ndiswrapper? Also, make sure that it is module is loaded by running: lsmod |grep ndis
If that doesnt come back with anything, run: ndiswrapper -m
And, do you have the correct .inf files for your driver downloaded and loaded into ndiswrapper?
