I'll try to answer your questions.
NDISwrapper is a Linux program that allows you to use Windows WiFi drivers in Linux. So, you need to download (or otherwise acquire) the Windows driver for your card.
But the Broadcom WiFi card that comes in the Mini 9 also has proper Linux drivers. Some distros, like Ubuntu, include the drivers. Others, like Debian, don't. I'm using Debian currently, so I had to download and compile the driver myself.
As for UNR (Ubuntu Netbook Remix) running on a flash drive, it should work (but I'm not sure about suspend/resume). In 9.10, the WiFi drivers don't activate automatically, but I don't think you need a wired connection to activate them.
I hope that info helps.
