I have one piece of advice, if you're using the if_ndis module don't  
build it with custom CPUTYPE values.  In my experience doing so can  
stop it working.  See the below post I made:


It's not too difficult to build that one module with the default  
CPUTYPE and still use a custom value for the rest, and doing so hasn't  
caused me any problems.
