nope---it comes before the first "" section.

this is crazy. yes, I think ndiswrapper is not the way to go IF I have
a native driver. but, obviously, for most cards we do not have native
drivers, and getting the wireless ethernet going on notebooks (majority
of computers now) is obviously a requirement for almost all users.
In any case, I did edit the FAQ (first time playing with wiki) and put
in two more pieces of info: [a] to try to migrate windows drivers that
work, and  the config_4kstacks mess.
