Ndiswrapper doesn't want to create directory

Hello everyone!

As I have tried to run ndiswrapper it was displayed

root@ubuntu:~# ndiswrapper -i /home/robin/WLAN/
Unable to create directory /etc/ndiswrapper/.Make sure you are running as root

Definitely I was running as root. Does anybody know what the he*l is wrong???

Thanx a lot.

The last time I installed a wireless, ( don't have it at the time )
I changed into the directory where the .inf file existed. Then ran the ndis command.
For example:
cd /media:/sda1/"WLAN Driver"
ndiswrapper -i SMCWUSB32.inf
