I had sooooo many problems with ndiswrapper on my Debian laptop. I could not, for the life of me, install it and make it work. In the end, I downloaded a SUSE rpm and used alien to convert it to a deb file. I did dpkg - newdebfile and ndiswrapper worked a treat. I don't know how much sense this will make to you but I am happy to guide you through what I did to see if it works for you.
that's what i mean, i am a complete newb so i don't know right now, like to learn though
0. Before you start, clear out any mess from existing failed attempts to use ndiswrapper.
just delete dirs containing ndiswrapper?
