Help with ndiswrapper installation
Hello, I have a DLink DWL-122 Wireless USB Adapter, and I'm trying to follow the instructions to install ndiswrapper on my Mandrake Discovery 10.
Ii'm having problem with the first part of the NdisWrapper Installation page
I can't find the kernel sources file for my verion (kernel-2.6.3-7mdk-1-1mdk) anywhere on the CDs or on the HD. So I downloaded kernel-18.104.22.168mdk-1-1mdk.src.rpm.
You need a recent kernel (at least 2.6.6 or 2.4.26) with source. Under Red Hat or Mandrake, the sources can be installed using the package kernel-source<kernel-version>.rpm.
Make sure there is a link to the kernel source from the modules directory. /lib/modules/VERSION/build should be a link to the kernel source, where VERSION is the version of the kernel you are running. If there is no link, you'll get an error at the make install step. To create a link, assuming the kernel sources are present, use the command
ln -s /usr/src/linux-<kernel-version> /lib/modules/VERSION/build
That's there it all ends. I don't know what to do with this file.
Also the directories "/usr/src/linux-<put version number here>" and "/lib/modules/<put version number here>/build do not exsist on my system.
Can anyone help walk me though it? If I can get through the first part, I can follow the rest of the instructions to finish. Thank you!

try doing this, from the directory where you downloaded the kernel-22.214.171.124mdk-1-1mdk.src.rpm
