Please note: Not all WIndows XP Drivers work with ndiswrapper.

Take a look at http://cmb.phys.cwru.edu/kisner/linux/compaq-r3000/ who has a 
gzipped tarball with the drivers he got to work.  I believe his are the 
drivers that made my Compaq 3120 start working on wireless.  The ones that 
came with the notebook did not work!
