    Prerequisites as listed in the install.txt of the ndiswrapper-1.58.tar.gz
    You need a recent kernel, at least 2.6.14, with header files for the kernel. Make sure there is a link in the kernel source from the modules directory.

    This is what I get:

    Code:
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build 
    arch     firmware  Kconfig                 mm              security 
    block    fs        kernel                  Module.symvers  sound 
    crypto   include   lib                     net             tools 
    debian   init      linux-headers.revision  samples         usr 
    drivers  ipc       Makefile                scripts         virt 
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ cd ~knoppix/ndiswrapper-1.58 
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~/ndiswrapper-1.58$ make uninstall 
    rm -f /usr/share/man/man8/ndiswrapper.8 
    rm -f /usr/share/man/man8/loadndisdriver.8 
    make -C driver uninstall

    rm -f /lib/modules/3.6.11/misc/ndiswrapper.ko

    You have to be root if you want to uninstall kernel modules. Therefore issue
    Code:
    sudo make uninstall
    instead of 'make uninstall'.

    Per the Install instructions I first typed in:
    Code:
    make uninstall
    make
    I ignored the error with "make uninstall" then proceeded with instructions.
    "Login as root then run"
    Code:
    make uninstall
    .

    I then followed next instructions "Then install windows driver with"
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -i driver.inf
    Returned error "command ndiswrapper not found".
    Also tried

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -i Driver/LSTINDS.INF
    Got the same error.

    Note: "Driver" is the name of the folder with the LSTINDS. INF file.

    I would issue
    Code:
    cd /home/knoppix/ndiswrapper-1.58
    sudo make uninstall 
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install
    cd /home/knoppix
    sudo ndiswrapper -i Driver/LSTINDS.INF
    sudo ndiswrapper -m
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    'Driver/LSTINDS.INF' is the path of your INF file.

    Cant seem to edit my posts now. klaus2008: Was having to many errors with that install to flash drive (-C command not found, /home/knoppix/ndiswrapper-1.58 not a valid directory, etc). Re-installed knoppix 7.0.5 CD version to flash drive and followed advice in post 4. Everything is working great and I'm posting this thru the provided Iceweasel browser. Should have did that before, sorry, thought it was some limitation with the .iso so didn't mention it before. At least we now know that the ndiswraper-1.58 works great on the 7.0.5 CD version. Sorry again about everything else between your 4th post and this one. I don't know a whole lot, just enough to mess things up. Thanks very much for having patience with me and sticking with me, even through my bought of overthinking.

    The ndiswrapper-1.58 works great, but, every time I boot into the USB drive I have to open up a CLi and type in
    Code:
     
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    to get my wireless card to power up.

    I have tried:
    Code:
     
    sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit
    but this just makes my wireles card power on and off whenever I try to connect to the internet.

    I have since re-installed and set up drivers due to lack of knowledge on how to fix my mistake.
    What is the command I need to issue to get the ndiswrapper to work without having to type in the above mentioned command every time I boot into Knoppix?
