With that exact same driver, the folowing setup works:
wpa_supplicant 0.2.5
 dennis at raptor ~ $ wpa_supplicant -v
 wpa_supplicant v0.2.5 - Copyright (c) 2003-2004, Jouni Malinen 
ndiswrapper from my OS distribution (probably recent version)
 dennis at raptor ~ $ dmesg | grep ndis
 ndiswrapper version 0.10 loaded (preempt=yes,smp=no)
 ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5.sys (ASUS,07/17/2003, added
 ndiswrapper: using irq 11
 wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device 00:0e:a6:9d:ac:09 using driver
 ndiswrapper device wlan0 supports WPA with AES/CCMP and TKIP ciphers

The card is Asus Wl100g (PCMCIA) and the driver is the windows 2000
driver since I was warned that the XP driver would not work :)
