    try taking a look at this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=740632

    you'll need to also blacklist b43-pci-bridge

    i have seen the guide you reference. the script you reference is not necessary.

    simply blacklist b43 and ssb, and add:
    Code:
    modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    modprobe -r b44
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    modprobe b44
    to /etc/rc.local

    for more details see the link i posted above.

    glad you got it working. the problem you were experiencing was, most likely, simply because you were trying to use the vista drivers which won't work with ndiswrapper.
