Tried it, still don't know
I just got your message and tried it and got not a whole lot. Here's what came up. Nano came up in the shell and said at the bottom [Error reading /etc/sudoers: Permission denied] I may be doing something wrong. I opened up Konsole it reads

No matter what I did I couldn't gain access to anything so last night I ended up downloading and installing kubuntu 6.06. After that I was able to do a lot more. However, I still have some problems. I gained root access with visudo and began to install ndis wrapper per the instructions here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WifiDocs/Dri...iswrapperHowto everything seemed to go well there. Then I went to install the drivers for my wireless. I'm using an Acer aspire 3000 laptop and the wireless adapter is a broadcom b/g. For some reason it shows up as eth1 instead of wlan0 when I look at it. All the checks on the howto seem to work just fine. When I go to the wireless assistant the wireless connection is disabled. I switch to administrator mode and attempt to enable it and it enables it for about a second and then disables it again. I have no idea what to do now. I hope someone out there can help. I've spent hours just getting to the point I am now, and I can't wait to at least get my wireless connection to work so I don't have to use two computers.
