The default install of Mandrake 9.2 on the NX7000 doesn't enable ACPI.
When calling loaddriver, it gets as far as printing out
Calling startdriver ioctl
then the machine freezes (no response to keyboard/mouse, cursor stops
blinking - only way out is to use the power button).
The only message in syslog (with debug output enabled) is
ndiswrapper version 0.3 loaded
Enabling ACPI (by removing acpi=ht from the boot options) cures the
problem, and then everything works fine.
P.S. As this is my first post, thanks to everyone who has contributed to

Oops, forgot to include the vital information!
Kernel is 2.4.22-10mdk
Card is Intel Corp. PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini
PCI Adapter (rev 04)
Ndiswrapper was built from the 0.3 release tarball
Driver is w70n51.sys from HP service pack. From .inf file
DriverVer = 10/11/2003,188.8.131.52
I also tried the Asus driver, with exactly the same result.

No. Having found a working configuration, I'm not inclined to mess with
it. I wanted ACPI enabled anyway (which is why I discovered it fixed the
problem with ndiswrapper).

could it be that ht means HyperThreading?
AFAIK SMP is not yet supported.

Yes. "acpi=3Dht" means "use ACPI only as a means of finding
sibling (ht) cpus; other than that, forget about it."
