can't configure belkin PCI wireless card

I am having problems getting my belkin F5D6001 PCI wireless card recognised - I'm using mdk 10 official, i586. After reading another post on here I gather the drivers aren't available from belkin but can be built with ndiswrapper - I installed ndiswrapper, copied the files from the CD and did

ndiswrapper -i Bel6001.inf

when I go to configure the card though (using mdk control center) there are no new drivers available...

this is the output of lspci:

which has my card on there as an unknown device...what do I do now?

Is the ndiswrapper module loaded?


If not...

/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper

Also, the device is added as wlan0, and Mandrake might be too dumb to see a wlan0 device as opposed to an ethX, although I doubt that's the case.

I also have similar problem. Linux doesn't recognize my card at all. See complete description of my problem in the link below,

Let me know if you find out something.
