If it's a 43xx chipset then you may be able to use the Linux driver from
http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/, which would probably be much less hassle to
build in than ndiswrapper.

You've got to build from source to add your own drivers. The kernel in
the Sisela releases does not support module loading.

Anyway, if you have the option of CD booting there may be other,
actively maintained CD distributions which would be better suited.
Sisela was primarly intended as a solution which would fit on a floppy,
with the CD version being an easy-to-add afterthought.
