Wireless on Asus EEE 1000HA on Ubuntu 8.10

on a default ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386 install BEFORE updating kernel/packages:
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-intrepid
reboot. ta-da, wireless!

my mistake was updating the kernel beforehand. that package didn’t add wireless support. attempting to build the driver source and loading it into the kernel seemed to only be for the EEE 1000H, not 1000HA. stupid me wasted 2-3 hours dying for nothing.
