System Crash when kldload if_ndis

I'm not sure if the problem I am having is with the kernel modules I am
using (I've tried with two different ones) or with the ndis module
itself or what. I am running FreeBSD 5.4 amd64 on an Asus A8V-E Deluxe
motherboard, AMD 64 3000+, 512MB RAM. The ndis drivers I am using are
for a Marvell 88E8053 gigabit ehternet controller and the onBoard wifi
controller of the Asus A8V-E Deluxe (i'm not sure what the chipset is).
When using ndiscvt I get the error "section relocation failed". Other
errors is when I am trying to ndiscvt the marvell driver I get the error:
ndiscvt: line 238: Controlled%: syntax error.
Here are the lines in the inf file:
237: HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum, 0,, %Non%
238: HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum, 15,, %OS Controlled%
239: HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum, 25,, %Magic Packet%
Basically I don't think it likes the spaces, so I went through the whole
.inf deleting the spaces wherever it threw up a syntax error and in the
end it compiled a kernel module that then crashed the system. I didn't
get a chance to get the error when it crashed the system.
The wifi driver went through ndiscvt without any problems but when I try
and kldload the wifi driver I get this error:
Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
fault virtual address = 0x96222d5b
fault code = supervisor read, page not present
instruction pointer = 0x8:0xffffffff961e2466
stack pointer = 0x10:0xffffffff961d75d0
frame pointer = 0x10:096222d57
code segment = base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b

processor eflags = Interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0
current process = 472 (kldload)
trap number = 12
panic: page fault
Other points to note is that I had to run the marvell .inf file through
iconv with the -c flag to ignore characters it couldn't convert, this
could possibly have left out some important data from the inf maybe?
I'll be gratefull for any suggestions
