I have the following prism54 card:
00:08.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation ISL3886 [Prism
Javelin/Prism Xbow] (rev 01)
Which does not work yet with prism54's drivers. So I tried ndiswrapper.
Downloaded ndiswrapper 0.12. Kernel 2.6.9-1.698 (Fedora Core 3)
complained : "kernel: ndiswrapper: Unknown symbol task_nice"
So I grabbed kernel with 16k stack from linuxant. It made things worse.
When the machine tries to raise the ndiswrapper module, the kernel locks
During a reboot, fedora tried to load ndiswrapper again. I got a new
The message was:

uninitialized lock d1697774, fixing it

And then it locked up.

Am I doing something wrong? What should I do?
