    I don't believe you have to put it in any specific folder. I think you just call ndiswrapper command and pass in the windows driver. Just type ndiswrapper command in terminal, it should tell you what to do.

    Huawei wireless modems are supported natively in Linux... you don't need the windows driver or ndiswrapper.

    It is a BSNL supply and their CD gives only window drivers . I do not find any download sites for Linux driver .
    I am new to linux.
    In India , we easily get cheap matrimonial advertisements encouraging caste system , not the Linux knowledge
