is my card fried? WPC54G linksys -- slackware 10


i have a linksys WPC54G ver 2

i have followed every phreakin tutorial.. and i've done all the
ndiswrapper -i lsbcmds.inf *first off, is this the right driver? i got it from the linksys website, cause i can't find my cd*
ndiswrapper -l
NOW this says invalid driver.. where before it just said 'driver present' instead ov
driver present, hardware present.
but i honestly don't know if this is the right driver.. cause i can't find my cd.
wlan0 doesn't exist..
modprobe ndiswrapper goes in w/o a hitch.. but no blinky lights on the card at all..

(is the card supposed to light up on boot? not the link, but the power light?

i have never set up a wireless in linux, but this card worked on my gf's laptop with win32 before i tried to use it in linux...

if there is any more info, or if i'm not explaining what i did before i posted, please let me know.. i'm not trying to be lazy, i did everything the tutorials said to before i posted.. this is day 3.

thanks in advance.
