FC4 ndiswrapper issues- Where can I find RPMs?

Does anyone know where I can find ndiswrapper RPMs that match? kernel-module-ndiswrapper-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4-1.2-0.lvn.3.4.i686.rpm and ndiswrapper-1.18-1.lvn4.i386.rpm won't work together, event hough they are co-dependent (and I've tried installing them together with sudo rpm -ivh *wrapper*.rpm) I am currently using Fedora Core 4 (kernel 2.6.11-1.1369), and cannot update right now because I have a dial-up modem (3 KBps on a good day!)

Any suggestions?

How about building the RPM yourself. It is quite easy here are the steps:
1. Download the ndiswrapper-1.21.tar.gz (this is latest version) from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/
2. install the package fedora-rpmdevtools using yum (small files so okay on dialup)
3. run $ fedora-buildrpmtree to create rpmbuild tree in home directory
4. run $ rpmbuild -tb /path/to/ndiswrapper-1.21.tar.gz
5. RPMS will be created
6. RPMS will be saved to ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/i686/
7. Install rpms and ndiswrapper will be installed

Thanks blue, I got it installed, but when I followed the instructions at sourceforge, I got hung up on the part where you have to setup the network parameters. What program do I use? Where might I find the "documentation" it talks about?

Not sure what you mean about the network parameters. This is the link that I used to set up my wireless http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...Windows_driver
The link starts by installing the windows drivers and then goes on to configuring the connection. Post back if you have trouble at any specific steps.

I got it. The answers were on the ndiswrapper wiki under Distro Specific Instructions. What I was having trouble with was I couldn't find 'wlan0' in the pull down menu in the Network Control panel. Thanks.
