Firstly, you mean "Ubuntu" and "Xubuntu".
Now, back to your problems. You'll need to do all this stuff as root, so open a terminal (xterm, Konsole, etc), type "su" (without quotes) and enter your root password. I'm assuming you've got a regular user account that you use for every day things and aren't using root all the time (which is not sensible). You'll then be able to run text editors and have permissions to edit the various files.
1. You'll probably want the ndiswrapper kernel module loaded every time you boot your machine, so you'll need to edit the file /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and add the line "/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper" to it (I added it near the end, but it doesn't really matter), without the quotes.
2. Do you have the WPA Supplicant package installed? If not, it should be in the "n" directory on CD 1 or any Slackware mirror, such as this one
. Install it with "installpkg wpa_supplicant-0.5.7-i486-1.tgz" from the directory in which it's located (after you've downloaded it or mounted the CD).
3. Add an entry to the file /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf for your wireless network. Here's a simple example of what mine looks like:
4. Edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and find the section under "Example config information for wlan0". You'll want to uncomment (i.e. remove the leading #) and edit the following lines so they look the same:
If you get your IP address via DHCP (i.e. it's assigned automatically by your router), then you also want the following line:
After that, you should just be able to run "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart" and it should work.
