Wirless card on a laptop

I still can't make my linksys card work on my laptop running FC3 with 2.6.9 kernel.
I tried installing ndiswrapper on it, but it gave me warning message about FC3 having 4k stack and at least 8k is needed. So nothing got installed.
The messege comes up during ./configure and make install phase.
So I tried installing a 2.6.9 kernel I found with 16k stack.
Now it gave me a warning message saying:
*** Warning: "get_user_size" [/home/.../ndiswrapper-1.0/driver/ndiswrapper.ko] undefined!
I'm trying to install version 1.0. Someone sudgested trying version .12, but I'm not sure if previous version will solve this problem.

Linksys WCP11 v4.
Oh also I should note, I found some linux "drivers' on linksys site. When I tried to install them, I got an error some file was missing in the driver.
