So far, we've gotten a bunch of stuff done. I'm running Kubuntu 6.06.1 LTS. We figured out it already had NDISWrapper installed, so I popped in my WPN111 CD and had my friend walk me through how to use the Konsole. We installed the netwpn11.inf from the nds5 folder on the disc. Whe Wireless Assistant still isn't seeing my Adapter though, so I'm guessing I have a few more steps to go.
I'll check back later, ciao for now.

As far as I can tell you, I know I have ndiswrapper in, and netwpn11.inf is installed as a driver. Linux apparently isn't seeing my hardware, however.
It looks like you got as far as configuring the driver for ndiswrapper. Now you have to actually load the driver;
sudo depmod -a
This adds the ndiswrapper module to the kernel depmod. Then do;
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
This loads the actual ndiswrapper module configured with the Windows driver.
See section 126.96.36.199 in the Ubuntu wiki article here.
Now that the module is loaded, do;
You should see an entry for wlan0 with some output. Your not done yet. Let me ask;
1. Do you have KWiFimanager installed?
2. Do you know the essid name and passphrase for the modem or router that you are using? You will need these to proceed either through the console or KWiFiManager.
3. Are you using WEP or WPA encription through the router or modem?
When I try modprobe, it gives me a fatal error witn an invalid argument.
FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (Long directory list ending with /ndiswrapper.ko) Invalid argument
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
3: WEP, got my passphrase.
