Connect you laptop with a wired connection and use Synaptic to install the package firmware-b43-lpphy-installer. This package will automatically download and install the needed firmware.

Put in your Windows CD (or USB), boot from it and go to the recovery console.
Once there launch the command
Code:
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
After a restart your system should work fine.

I would wonder if there is a netbook without USB, but anyways, it could help to look into the manual for that machine, or look it up at the manufacturers website.

If you install any Linux distribution to the now free space it will automatically pick up your Windows installation in the bootloader.
If you need a Windows installation medium you can get a free evaluation copy of Windows 7 here and instructions how to put in on USB here.

Sorry, the only way I know is using a bootable Windows install medium.
