Intel 2100 wireless card and NDISwrapper

I'm trying to get my laptop working with the built in Intel 2100 PCI wireless card.

Anyway, from what I can see there are two ways to get the intel 2100 working either using the ipw2100 driver or use the NDISwrapper. Given I couldn't get HostAP loaded I went for the NDISwrapper, I downloaded it and run the 'make' stuf! Anyway it all went to plan but the card didn't work :-( it turns out I need a kernel that supports a larger stack. I downloaded and installed that - wow my first kernel upgrade too :-)

I needed to re-install the NDISwrapper as the kernel path had changed, so did that but now the make install is generating an error. Can you throw any light on this error?

I'm pretty sure the problem is caused by

Same issue

I'm experiencing the same issue after upgrading my kernel and kernel source to the 8k stack kernel that I found on Linuxant's site. I had read on the ndiswrapper forum this was necessary to get ndiswrapper working properly. Please help!
