i need help with making a linux distro
Why?

There are already hundreds of Linux distros. Why do you want to make another one?

You want to make a distro, but you don't have the skill to do that yourself. Why try? Why even try?

Why a Mate desktop? Why not an LXDE desktop?

I've made my own with SUSE studio but when i login it says command unkown
What EXACTLY does it say?

Maybe you are trying to run before you can walk...

1) Why do you need ndiswrapper installed by default?
a) Can you connect by cable TEMPORARILY? Then you can install ndiswrapper.
b) Do you know what your wifi chip is?

2) Linux Mint is generally the best way to go for noobs. What are the basic specs of your computer? How much RAM (memory) have you got?

3) Why did Linux Mint Cinnamon not work? What happened? How far did you get? Did you burn the ISO properly? Look here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto
