building madwifi is very easy.  You should just have to install
package "build-essential" and the kernel header (ie.
"linux-headers-686") ubuntu packages.

Then grab the lastest madwifi released tarball (0.9.1), extract it,
make, sudo make install, modprobe ath_pci.

download latest madwifi tarball:
