Ndiswrapper on FC6 Compaq Laptop

Hey all. New to posting here but I have been trollin around for a bit. I have an issue with getting wireless working on my laptop (go figure.)

Specs of interest:
Compaq Persario 2108US
Brodcomm Chipset Wireless card pcid 14e4:4320 (rev 02)
Fedora Core 6
Kernel: 2.6.20-1.2933.fc6xen

I tried using the bcm43xx but as with many people it caused many a Kernel Panic. I removed all relevent mods, drivers, and firmware then proceeded to start work on ndiswrapper.
I get as far as modprobe ndiswrapper and get the error:

FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2933.fc6xen/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module format

When I check the /var/log/messages and dmesg I see the following:

ndiswrapper: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module

My kernel is using 4k stacks, but I havnt seen any errors relating to it so I am not sure if this is the issue or not... Any ideas?
