I must, just in case there are other Jeffs out there stuck in the same boat... as I
have a workaround!:

OK Jeff my man, the ndiswrapper stuff works! Here are the already extracted
INF files that I found on my Windows disk.
All you have to do is follow the http://wiki.debian.org/NdisWrapper
instructions, and remember to do
# echo blacklist r8192s_usb >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
Worked for my
0bda:8171 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter
(It worked even on the same machine where a Sparklan ndiswrapper driver
caused a kernel Oops.)

OK that is great to know too! I would have never thought of it!
