Question Wireless Notebook adapter install


I have a motorola Wireless notebook adapter (WN825G) that i'm trying to install, but have run into a small road block.

I've installed ndiswrapper just fine and now i'm trying to install the driver (bcmw15.inf). My problem is that whenever i put the windows cd it shows up as empty (as far as I can tell).

How do i browse the cd to get the bcmw15.inf file to install into ndiswrapper? Or is there a diffrent way to get this file?

Thanks for helping if you can!

ok, so i'm stupid.
A: the file name bcmwl5.inf, NOT bcmw15.inf. I thought the leter "l" was the number "1."

B: i got it installed using ndiswrapper and now to test out the hardware.
