You don't have to build if_ndis.ko and ndis.ko manually,
they should already be present in /boot/kernel.
If ndisgen "doesn't work" you usually get an error message.
Without knowing the error message and how you got it,
it's hard to tell what's wrong.
Try running ndisgen /path/to/INF /path/to/SYS
an press return a few times. Afterwards you should
either have the kernel module containing the firmware,
or a reason why the build failed.
