Getting windows drivers to work with linux?

I assume this is because the drivers are missing for the wireless card. Should i use ndiswrapper to get them to work? how do i install it on my laptop without a connection? thanks More about : windows drivers work linux Ijack a b D Laptop a b \ Driver July 24, 2010 10:09:46 AM Can you give details of your laptop.
