I recently created a USB flash puppy.
The CD-R I used had no problems when I modprobed ndiswrapper.
However, I tried to repeat this command on my USB flash puppy and it told me it couldn't find it.

Where do I get the ndiswrapper kernel module? I couldn't find it using PupGet or PET.

The ndiswrapper is contained in the zdrv_xxx.sfs file (where xxx corresponds to your version of puppy).

You must have that file available the first time you load the module. Puppy will copy the module to your instalation after that so you don't need to carry it around.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'available' when you say that I must have the zdrv_213.sfs file available the first time I load the ndiswrapper kernel module.

I do have zdrv_213.sfs on BOTH partitions of my USB stick. Please see my thread for my setup weirdness.
