Stupid newb + Knoppix + Wireless Network + ndiswrapper = PROBLEM!

Hi well I am very new to knoppix and want to try out some live cd's I have knoppix and it has ndiswrapper so I can use my wireless network card but when I go into ndiswrapper it asks about a .inf file which I have no idea what it is, I read something about a .cab file to do with the .inf file but I want to know basically what it is and where in windows it can be found. Thanks.
