Belkin PCMCIA Wireless under ndiswrapper fails to load driver

I am setting up a Belkin F5D7010 wireless-g PCMCIA card (Broadcom chipset) under ndiswrapper. I downloaded the Windows drivers and installed them using ndiswrapper -i. There was no error message, and ndiswrapper -l listed the driver as loaded, but not the hardware. I used lspci -n to find the device number, and then ndiswrapper -d to associate the driver with the card.

Now, I get:
# ndiswrapper -l
Installed drivers:
bcmwl5          driver installed, hardware present
modprobe ndiswrapper gives no error message, but dmesg contains this:
ndiswrapper version 1.14 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)
ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5 (Broadcom,06/13/2003, loaded

ndiswrapper (miniport_init:273): couldn't initialize device: C0000001
ndiswrapper (pnp_start_device:497): Windows driver couldn't initialize the device (C0000001)
and the power light on the wireless card fails to turn on.

Does anyone know what "code: 9" is?
Where do I go from here?

Toshiba Tecra 8200 (Pentium III 1 GHz, 512 Mb RAM)
running Slackware Linux 10.2
under the 2.4.31 Linux kernel.

Even though you are running slack,...

The same thing applies, pretty much.
