D-Link DWL-G510 Rev B Install Problems

I installed the madwifi drivers on my system and added this line to my modprobe file
alias ath0 ath_pci

However my card is not even detected on start up or listed under Administration/Network/Devices tab.

I would like to know how to finish the installation. I installed it before and got the card to work, but I cannot get it to work again.

Here are my system specs:
