In a terminal use these commands:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
tar xfj /path/to/your/downloaded/file/madwifi-0.9.4.tar.bz2
cd madwifi-0.9.4
sudo make install
sudo modprobe ath_pci

If you have downloaded the .gz version instead of .bz2, replace the second 
line with this one:

tar xfz /path/to/your/downloaded/file/madwifi-0.9.4.tar.gz

If that doesn't work, please post any error messages.
