I haven't tried the PPC driver yet, but setting up a i386 machine  
(also a broadcom chip but ndiswrapper did the trick in that case) was  
fairly easy.  See
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WiFiHowto>.  You will probably need to  
download the wireless-tools package to a USB memory stick and install  
it before getting everything to work.
