I tried this today on a Dell Inspiron laptop that has a BCM93006 (IIRC)
Wifi card in it.  The ndiswrapper tool appeared to function correctly
when I installed the windows driver via it's .inf file, but 'modprobe
ndiswrapper' failed with an error about "wrong module format".  I have
not researched the error yet -- it's a friend's laptop, and she had to
take it home with her.  I will try and fix it next time she visits.

I'm wondering if it's an error in the compilation of the modules?   It
was a 2.6.9-686 set from Hoary.
