Asked by Angelair on 2007-04-04

I am new to Linux and I am trying to install a program to enable my wireless adapter: Ndiswrapper 1.41 (http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/Installation) I downloaded it from the website and I am following the installation instructions. Was going fine until it stated that I needed to be log as root for the next step. I am working in the Terminal. (Go to the source-directory and run 'make distclean' and 'make'. As root, run 'make install'.) I do not know how to do this in here. Pls Help.
