You do not need to compile your own kernel, just the module.
Instructions as to how to do this can be found at:-
and yes those instructions are Debian specific.
There are an error in that page, and some changes needed
if you are using 2.6.12.
In the first make-kpkg at the end of the line it should not be
"old configure" but rather "oldconfig".
If you are using 2.6.12 then prefix the two make-kpkg
commands with KERNELPATH=/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12
Then you will have madwifi up and running.
