    Hmm i believe i tried that /sbin/lspci command, but it didnt seem to wotk at first.
    Ok well i installed that package from the cd, and ran the command 'lspci'

    It gave me a whole list of hardware devices. Now i was looking at this "readme" file that ndiswrapper came with, and it mentioned using both lspci, or lsusb. I ran lsusb just for the heck of it, and the Linksys adapter is recognized. Then I tried to install the driver "prism" and i even copied the .inf file from the Linksys cd, but it doesnt seem to install correctly. When I type in the command: 'ndiswrapper -i prism54' it gives me an error like :

    cp : stat error: 'prism54' no file or directoy exist ( off of memory)

    I then went ahead and typed in the command 'urpmq lspci' and 'urpmq lsusb' but it still gives me the no such package error.

    you have to specify the path to the inf file if it is not in the present directory e.g. ndiswrapper -i /home/user_name/driver/prism.inf

    YAY! ok well i was able to successfully install the prism54 driver, only when i run the command ndiswrapper -l it still tells me that the hardware is not present. I loaded the prism54.ko driver, does it have to be the prism54.inf file?

    does lspci or even lsusb show that the hardware is present?

    Thats where i am confused. Those commands display that the hardware is there. I mean it lists the brand and even the 802.11 b part. Maybe ill just have to play around with it, like the way i found out how to install those .ko files successfully.
