  1. im trying to set up a wireless network pci card i just got given on my mandriva box. im using powerpack edition 2008 with a belkin router. when i try the wireless set up in configure your computer it tells me to use the windows driver (which i had to downl;oad) with ndiswrapper? when i try this i get this error Some components (firmware) are required but aren't available for ndiswrapper hardware. Firmware files are required for this device. The required files can also be installed from this URL: http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/List i dont understand this as i updated ndiswrapper through install software? did a google for linux drivers for this card and was told to get the following driver acx-mac80211-vlynq-20071006.tar.bz2 unpacked it through konsole and cd into file and cant get any further as it says no such file or directory when i type ./configure read the readme file in the folder and its so confusing i thought i was working for NASA any help here with simplified instructions please
