    For AMD64 cpu's running on a 64-bit kernel, i found that best way to get ndiswrapper is to compile it from source. However, be warned that you will require 64 bit drivers for the card to get it working in 64 bit mode.

    loft306, how does that work? I have been trying to get the wireless card to work on my brother's AMD 64 box with SuSE 9.3 64 bit on it, from dmesg, /var/log/messages and google, I have been led to believe that I need the 64 bit driver files for the card to work.
