Turned out to be easier than expected. uncompresse the driver. cd driver. make. make install. then:

and NetworkManager restart and I now see all the wireless devices around. I don't know if every steps were necessary, but it worked here.

I wonder if we could call the fact that Network Manager doesn't see my wifi card when I load the driver, a bug?
