    I'm confused as to what you're asking. Are you saying you're having trouble compiling the ndiswrapper application from source and what an RPM you can download to install it that way?

    Or are you having trouble making an ndiswrapper RPM from source?

    If you want an rpm for ndiswrapper, search on http://rpm.pbone.net
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    It's not really that hard.

    Just cd to the directory you want to go to like:
    cd /usr/home/ndiswrapper
    ./configure
    make
    su ( log into root)
    make install

    and there it is
