Hi all,

Electrical storm blew out my NIC and I installed a spare wireless card but since I can't get on any network, local or remote I can't download driver from the internet. So I am left with copying files off of USB drive or CD.

How do I down load file and *not* install it but copy and install on another computer?

I am running hardy with pretty much latest updates.

If you got a livecd, ndiswrapper is on the cd it's located in /pool/main/n
