Question Belkin wireless card in Slackware

I found another thread that had the following instructions to get a wireless card working:

1. compile and install ndiswrapper
2. install windows driver
a. lspci -n (find device id number) (mine is 104c:9066)
b. ndiswrapper -i whaterver.inf
c. ndiswrapper -d 104c:9066 whaterver (name of driver file without the extension)
d. ndiswrapper -hotplug
e. ndiswrapper -l ( will list installed driver files)
f. ndiswrapper -m (writes config for modprobe)

modprobe ndiswrapper (light should now appear on card)

**Need to have the wireless tool package installed**

e.g. - iwconfig wlan0 essid Wireless channel 6 key s:weppassword
dhcpcd wlan0

not sure of the info for network?

iwlist wlan0 scan ( brings up wireless info about the access point in range

Everything works fine until I try: modprobe ndiswrapper

I get the following -

Note: /etc/ndiswrapper/modalias is more recent than /lib/modules/2.4.26/modules.dep

The lights don't turn on, and when I try iwconfig I get -

lo no wireless extensions

So what am I missing or doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
