Is ndiswrapper included in the 9.04 .iso? If not is there a way to install it without an internet connection?

i dnt think it has but you just connect ur pc to tha net,run this command;
$ su 'ur username'
$ password " "
$ sudo apt- get install ndswrapper

the rest will follow,after which
log on to windows if u have two os on ur machine
look for ur network driver eg if its a wireless driver, look for a file ending with a '.ini'
copy that file into tha folder where tha ndswrapper files(installed files have been kept
restart ur machine.

this will ensure that ubuntu uses tha windows wireless drivers to work in ubuntu 9.04
hit back if that worked out for you!
