    if that doesn`t work then try with this file first type in the terminal:
    sudo chmod +x madwifi.sh

    the type:
    sudo ./madwifi.sh

    and that`s it.

    I did what you said and got this:

    josh@JoshW:~$ sudo chmod +x madwifi.sh
    josh@JoshW:~$ sudo ./madwifi.sh
    Found at least one Atheros device.

    seems like you don`t have all repos enabled, so go to synaptic, eneble all the repos, reload the package list and search for subversion in synaptic and install it, and then do again:
    sudo ./madwifi.sh
