Dell wireless driver

Forums: 

Ahoy there,
I'm new to Linux, having just installed mint yesterday on my dell laptop. It went well, but my wireless card (dell 1395) needs a driver. I downloaded the file from Broadcom but can't understand how to install it. From googling, this seems to a common problem that's easily resolved but I'm completely lost. Can anyone please help?

I seem to need the kernal developement kit, where can I download this from?
