Is it difficult to install a wireless pci card?

I am relativly new to linux and wanted to get my wireless card working. After some investigation I found that my card will work dwl-520 (based on the prism 2.5 chip). The problem is that they want me to download 3 different tar files hostap-driver-0.1.2.tar.gz , hostap-utils-0.1.2.tar.gz and hostapd-0.1.0.tar.gz. They also wanted me to download and install wireless tools for linux. I have untarred them fairly easily but am kinda stuck on how to install them. Also I am running Mandrake 9.2
