It shouldn't be that much different. The same idea is there. There's a module that needs to be activated on boot. You'll need to hunt down which module it is, but once you know which is the right module the instructions should activate it. It's been a long time since I've ran into someone needing to manually compile a module, and others here probably have more experience than me, but these instructions are what I remember doing.
Edit: Use sudo lspci -v to get a list of loaded modules. You can run this before and after compiling the module to see what new one shows up.
Followed the steps using the .ko that was built for my driver - rebooted - still no wireless - as before - if I rebuild driver I have wireless until next reboot -- Nothin' left to do but smile smile smile
