madwifi is better because... ( in one pc )
	- it supports 3 flavors of WEP key sizes
	- it supports wpa 
	- it can be your AP
	- it can be firewalled
	- it can be a small i386 machine and nothing fancy
	- it can be hardened
	- it can be patched and upgraded
	- it can be a wifi sniffer
	- it can crack wep keys
	- on-n-on

if you use ndiswrapper...
	- all it is a dumb wifi client with limited
	functionality the microsoft provides for you
	and at their discretion of what *-you-* need

	- not all features that work on a windoze
	box will work under emulation mode w/ ndiswrapper
