Talking ndiswrapper install broadcom hp ze4600 AMD

I just spent the longest week of my LIFE getting my wireless card to work on my brand new ze4600 laptop, koodo's to hp for using the amd, hurray. Anywho, I kept getting an error message when using ndiswrapper

'ndiswrapper -i bcmw15.inf
cp: stat 'bcmw15.inf' File doesn't exist.

It seemed to install, and the driver showed up, but it didn't work!!!!! AFter trying EVERYTHING and searching thousands of posts I cut and pasted it and it turns out that's it's an L not a 1, bcmwL5.inf. So if your having this problem, there you go, after I figured that out I had it working in less than five minutes on Fedora 2 test, and it seems to be working great, MUCH better than in XP

So jump for joy, hope this helps someone out!!!
