so I am assuming you have built the ndis base code (/sys/modules/ndis)

did you build the if_ndis module correctly? here it is for reference:

goto /sys/modules/if_ndis,
copy the *.inf file and the *.sys file for your xp driver into
run: ndiscvt -i {your inf file} -s {your sys file} -o ndis_driver_data.h (in
your modules/if_ndis folder!)
now run the usual make; make install to build the if_ndis module

now if you load the modules in order: kldload ndis; kldload if_ndis; the
device should load up on ifconfig.

if this doesnt work out post the debug info for it
