    I have a card based off the Libertas chipset, altho I'm using Gentoo, but basically, I got it working really easily with just the stock ndiswrapper instructions, altho I did the whole thing as root, which I'm pretty sure is a must.

    Also had to setup all the IEEE80211 kernel modules (ieee80211, crypt, crypt_tkip etc) and enable a bunch of compression algorithms (ARC, Michael etc) so read up on wpa_supplicant if you're trying to use that, and make sure you're doing your ndiswrapper driver setup as root.

    Sorry if I was too vague, can't really remember exactly what I did.

    HTH.
