First this driver, is it a linux or windows driver. If its a windows driver you will have to install a program called ndiswrapper.

It should have come with a "read me" file or something of that nature with the installation instructions.

driver

The driver that I am trying to load is a linux driver from the vendor which i have received, but I do not know in what directory in Xandros to copy the file so the wireless unit can find it.
