Okay, well, this limits your options. You need to do one of the
1. Grab a copy of kernel-source 184.108.40.206, make the headers package
like you said above, but with append-to-version '-2.386', and
install the headers package it creates.
Basically, you need headers for your exact kernel version. That's what
this seems to do (although I've never tried it).
Sometimes your configuration matters, too, so I would recommend
looking for a file in /boot like 'config-<version>' where
<version> is your version.
Then, use '--config menuconfig' and use the menu it presents to
load your configuration from that file. (Be careful with the
filename here, because I don't think menuconfig complains if it
can't find the file.)
2. Upgrade your running kernel to 220.127.116.11-3_386 so you can
install the headers package.
This is the most risky option if you're not familiar with kernel
upgrades, but the easiest and most reliable once the kernel is in.
(BTW, why does the wiki say 'just installing the kernel-headers will
not work'? That's the only way I've ever built ndiswrapper.)
Once one of these is done, you can continue.
