failure to set up 1370 WLAN MiniPCI Card

I installed ubuntu after not running linux for a couple years (last system I had was fedora core 1) so I thought i'd give it a try and put it on my insprion 2200 with a dual boot. I Followed the guide on the ubuntu wikki and got the ndiswrapper to install the inf driver I extracted from the dell driver, ran a ndiswrapper -l and it says the hardwarers present ect. than I ran the iwconfig and had 4 devices listed with none of them wireless enabled so somesing is missing I guess. I ran through the tuturials on this site and found one that says that I have to load the driver as a modual using this command
insmod lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/ndiswrapper.ko (i tried this and /`bob- -r`/) both times it said that no such directory exist. or in other words i'm lost

Just as a side question I have a 1100 page manual on fedora core 1 is it any use for running ubuntu or is it two outdated/incompatiable.
and I just realized i posted in the wrong forum, please don't eat me

normally with ndiswrapper you just 'modprobe ndiswrapper' and off it goes. You may also need to 'ifup wlan0' before you see anything in ifconfig or iwconfig.
