Another ndiswrapper question thread. I've got it CLOSE... little push in the right

Despite the many rpms and such, I decided to download the ndiswrapper source like I always have and compile it myself. First, I installed the appropriate kernel-develop libraries and gcc libraries.

I downloaded & compiled ndiswrapper, seemingly successful. I ran make install and it was installed to /usr/sbin. I then installed the driver, and edited my /etc/modprobe.conf file to look like this:

alias wlan0 ndiswrapper
alias eth0 b44
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-intel8x0 index=0
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
Here are the outputs of various other commands:

#ndiswrapper -l
Installed drivers:
bcmwl5 driver installed, hardware present
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.

That last command is a clue that it isnt working and I obviously cannot connect either... whats going on?
