Howdy all, i'm trying to get my network card's window drivers to work with linux and I have found out that I have to use the program ndiswrapper. Now i've used it before and understand how to install the drivers but the only thing is that I don't know how to install the ndiswrapper program onto linux without internet. Yes i've tried installing it from my feisty fawn installation disc but for some reason I couldn't find the packages no matter how many searches or apt-cdrom add commands I gave it. Does anyone know a solution? I was trying to manaully trying to find the ndiswrapper-utils & ndiswrapper common .deb packages but just can't find them.
