The distro comes with ndiswrapper already installed. You'll need to apt-get the ndiswrapper-utils package and then install the windows driver for you card into ndiswrapper.

ndiswrapper -i <path to driver>
ndiswrapper -m

After that, modprobe ndiswrapper and your card should work.

You can have the ndiswrapper module load at boot by adding ndiswrapper to the /etc/modules file.
