Yum needs an internet connection for it to work as it looks for packages at the mirrors. But if you were to mention which distribution you're using, it would be easier to recommend which package to install, as most all distributions have ndiswrapper in pre-compiled binaries. Because you tried installing a package ending in .tar.gz, means you are installing a source package, yum installs pre-compiled binaries for your distribution, not source code.
Here's one way of get it done:
and put "ndiswrapper" in the search field and click search, there are 11 pages of results, find the package for your distribution and click on it, the next page will give download links and information for the package including any dependencies it may require under "requires". Install it with rpm install command like so:
rpm -ivh packagename.rpm
Now, it may be worth googling on how to use this as I understand you need Windows drivers with ndiswrapper, I never used it so know not what to do, but you're better off using pre-compiled distribution specific binaries.
It appears you're using a xen kernel or something, and an unstable one at that, or you have the wrong source installed. You should give relative information in your posts, like what distribution?, what kernel?, what you are trying to get drivers for?.
