Offer ndiswrapper + windows driver installation

Bug #54976 reported by Bjorn Inge Berg on 2006-08-02

ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Currently, I have to use ndiswrapper on dapper to get an Internet connection with my INPROCOMM IPN2220 wireless card. It would be nice if ubiquity would offer to install ndiswrapper along with the windows driver (asking th user for the path to the driver) if a wireless card is detected, but no native driver is available.

Also, take a look at ndisgtk, which provides a graphical frontend for ndiswrapper. It is written in python, so integration with ubiquity shouldn't be a tremendous problem
