Ndiswrapper problem

So, I recently switched my distro from Ubuntu to SUSE. I had been running DriveLoader on Ubuntu with my Linksys WUSB54G and everything was working fine. But I was using a trial lisence and it was about to expire. So, I decided that when I switched over to SUSE 10, I would give Ndisrapper a try. So, I installed NDISWrapper and my drivers and when I enter
# ndiswrapper -l
As expected, I recieve,
Installed ndis drivers:
wubs54g     driver present, hardware present
So, then, I try and load the module with modprobe and it seems like there were no errors. Yet, when I go into the system log I get many errors, ranging from couldn't initialize device, to windows driver couldn't initialize device to couldn't start device. Yet when I go to YaST to look into the Network Devices it created a new device on wlan0 with ndiswrapper as it's module. So, I continue on, and go back into the terminal and enter iwconfig, but in the list I get, lo, eth0, and sit0 each with no wireless extensions, meaning I can't search for any ESSIDs to connect to. Can anyone help me out?

modprobe had no errors inserting the module, but the wrapper had errors trying to inititializing the Windows drivers. Listen to those errors! Post them!
