my computer type (i386)?

i'm trying to get linux to recognize my WLAN connection. I tried to install ndiswrapper, but it says that I can't on my computer type,
i386. I get this same message on other applications that I've tried to install. What can I do, if anything to get around this?

Could you please post the exact error message, as well as exactly what sort of computer you are using? Also, which Linux are you running?
