I am running dsl 4.25 on a frugal hd install. When trying to run ndiswrapper to set up the netgear wn511b card, modprobe reports a problem with the driver. I have been able to get this card to work using ndiswrapper in Knoppix 5.1. I am assuming that dsl may be using an earlier version of ndiswrapper which does not have support for this particular chipset. Being somewhat of a noob, I'm not sure where to go next. Is there a relatively simple method to compile and run a newer version of ndiswrapper short of remastering?

No and remastering would be the easier part of it. The more recent versions of ndiswrapper require newer gcc, etc.
