My wireless card wont work on ubuntu soi tryed the ndis command...apparently it isnt installed..u can install it from the add remove app's but u need INTERNET to do it...canonical is genius for that. I dont ahve any other connection other than wireless. i tryed downloading ndiswrapper-1.44 on xandros then saving to ubuntu. i extracted and followed the install instructions..using 'make distclean' worked fine, using 'make' had 2 errors and using 'sudo make install' had errors. all the errors lead to a file called loadndisdriver.8 and loadndisdriver.c. ive re-downloaded and re installed 3 times and still no change and i know there isnt anything wrong with my Kernel. Any ideas?

ndiswrapper is packaged on the Ubuntu CD. You have to add the CD drive to your repositories list.
If someone tells you to su rm -rf /

Try an older version, such as NDiswrapper 1.15.
