Provided you have the firmware for the bcm4313, that should at least
work with 2.6.32, I believe.  However, you may need to:

- boot with acpi_osi="Linux" boot parameter
- ensure wireless is enabled in BIOS before booting

See our notes for installing Debian on the similar model 1215P
(different graphics chipset but similar in other regards):
