ndiswrapper keeps crashing in Mandrake 10.1

Hello. I've been trying to install a WMP54G card in mandrake 10.1 for awhile now. I've been following the HOWTO, which has been very helpful, and at one point actually managed to get the connection up and running, the problem i'm running into is alot of the time the kernel flips out and the box crashs. I'm running the version of ndiswrapper that comes with 10.1 official and am using the drivers that came with the card (rt2500.inf). Any idea what would be causing this to happen. I read on the ndiswrapper webpage that you have to remove some stuff that mandrake installs, a kernel module, could that be what is causing these problems? Any pointers would be helpful. thanks.

If you are using the WinXP version of RA2500.sys then you should try the Win2000 version.

Just tried that, same deal, kernel freaks out and my box locks up. It usually takes a few minutes before the system goes down though.
