It doesnt work.
The link to F5D7051.exe does not work.
I managed to find the file, and it does not have:
usb8023.sys and rndismp.sys
it does have however in the 2kdriver folder two files named:
usb8023k.sys and rndismpk.sys <----- Note the K at the end of each file.
When I first copied those two files to their directory, I copied them without making the directory first. (etc/ndiswrapper/wusb54gv2/ )
I continued on with the installation and got all kinds of errors. I then fixed the directory (etc/ndiswrapper/wusb54gv2/ ) and put the two files in the right directory. I then did ndiswrapper-1 WUSB54GS.inf and it installed, but then i did ndiswrapper -l and got an invalid driver error.
I think it is a matter of putting all the files in the proper places before installation, like the ubuntu forum using the folder "my drivers" to work from. I am new to the linux folder structure and I do not know what does not belong. For example: In windows xp I know on C there are supposed to be at least 3 folders:
Documents and Settings
For Linux I have no idea what is going on yet and what things need to look like. All I know is after I tried installing this and other programs I had files scattered all over the place. So I just decided to reinstall slackware in order to start fresh and to address the issue with my partitions. On the first installation I assigned hda3 to /usr/local/ instead of just /usr.

I didn't understand what is your problem exactly?
but if you follow what i wrote i think should works(based on ubunto but little bit different.you should make a directory in etc/ndiswrapper/wusb54gsv2/
code: mkdir etc/ndiswrapper/wusb54gsv2/

To whom it may concern... I have not found a fix for this problem yet. I now use ubuntu and it still does not work with that either.
