Ndis wrapper is such a good idea. My question is this, could something
similar be done with other devices for Linux? For example, I have a printer
that has Windows drivers (of course) but it does not work under Linux. Does
Windows have a printer driver API that could be implemented under Linux to
allow all printers to work under Linux?

I have a problem when I try to install ndiswrapper.
when I make the ndiswrapper, I got a following message:
*** WARNING: Kernel is compiled with 4K stack size option
(CONFIG_4KSTACKS); many Windows drivers will not work with this option
enabled. Disable CONFIG_4KSTACKS option, recompile and install kernel
then ,after installation and when i try to do "modprobe ndiswrapper"
command , I got the error. Could you give me a help? Thanks!
The idea of ndiswrapper can be used for any device, but supporting other
devices requires extending ndiswrapper; ndiswrapper currently implements NDIS
(network API) and some kernel API used by network drivers only. Couple of
non-wireless network devices are known to work - see project page and wiki
I don't know much about what is involved to support printers; which specific
printer are you looking at and where can one find Windows driver for it?
