What is this: Go to source-directory?

I know this might be an easy question but can someone tell me how to get to the source directory. I simply don't know what that means. I am trying to install ndiswrapper and I dont understand what it means to go to the source-directory. Sorry if this is silly, thank you. I am a complete newbie and just want to get into the world of Mandrake.

After you extracted the ndiswrapper package, it should have created a new subdirectory wherever you extracted it. That is the ndiswrapper source directory.

If that isn't what you mean, please post the exact thing to which you are making reference.

I put ndiswrapper onto my Mandrake system from there I am lost. I thought that I just needed to install it but I simply don't understand what to do at all. I can give more details but that is the basic situation. Thanks
