ndiswrapper - "unable to handle kernel paging request..."
I'm trying to use ndiswrapper to get a D-Link DWL-G520+ wireless card going on my Slackware (10.2) box. It uses the TI-ACX111 chipset (and is number 14 under D on the ndiswrapper list of compatible cards).
I've been following the instructions on the ndiswrapper wiki. However, although it instructs you not to use the driver on your CD but to download it from a link on the above mentioned list*, there is no link to the driver for my card, the list merely saying that it ships with the card, so I've used the one on the CD.
All goes well until I reach the commandCode:
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c28cd000Code:
root@Bess:/home# modprobe ndiswrapper root@Bess:/home# Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c28cd000 further error messages
Google does throw up a few apparently related pages, but none that seem able to answer the problem.
Thanks for taking the time to read this - any help greatfully recieved
*As apparently it should then be more reliable, as it will have been tested

I think I may have tracked down the problem (or part of it), though I don't think I'm any closer to the solution.
One of the previous stages in the ndiswrapper installation guide is the commandCode:
When I run the command now get the messageCode:
modprobe config already contains alias directive
I've found a script in sbin called "generate-modprobe.conf" which looked promising, but having run it etc/modprobe.conf is still empty, and locate tells me that the script hasn't generated a file with that name anywhere else either.
So I guess what i'm asking now is how to write a modprobe.conf file - could I safely copy the one from another computer, or would this be Bad and Wrong?
Thanks again for any help you can give
