Ok I've tried SO much googling, reading and I cant find ANYWHERE a way to make my WIFI work on ubuntu 8.04

I'm really new as in I just got it yesterday as my first linux ever, other than it i've always ran windows...

I downloaded this "/madwifi-0.9.4/" thing,but I dont know how to make it work... the file labeled "install" wont do anything if I click it...

It's a Artheros 802.11 type wireless card, can anyone help...

I could use some help with this too. The 'wireless' option isn't showing up on my network settings. All the tutorials I could find were for if this option was actually there.
