Mandiva Wireless problem with Realtek RTL8187B


i am new to linux and started on ubuntu but i would like to duel boot my toshiba laptop with mandriva 2008 (free). i have managed to install it fine and i can use a ethernet cable to get updates but i dont want to be on ethernet cable perminently as its a laptop and i like to use it when im doing diffrent things in the house.

The inbuilt wirelesss card is the Realtek RTL8187B. I have tryed using ndiswrapper and i get a message saying i can not use the windows drivers with it and then tells me to look on the ndiswapper site to see which cards it supports. how can i get my wireless working as i really want to use mandriva !!

I do not have your device but another user used a MS driver and ndiswrapper
and this

suggests using iwconfig instead of /etc/network/interfaces
