You're looking for a .inf file *NOT* a .ini file. They're not the same
thing. The driver distribution from Linksys most definitely has both a
.sys file and .inf file for your device. Look harder. Also, check for
both upper and lower case file names.

He's trying to use the NDISulator which lets you use Windows binary
network drivers with FreeBSD. Before you go looking, the code is in
-current, not 5.2.1, but it will work with 5.2.1 if you install it
all correctly.
