My assumption is how it used to be. For me ten years ago, getting certain wireless drivers to worked involved this, that, some beer, and cussing. These days its more straightforward. Either install it...or use make, depmod -a, modprobe.

Linux has certainly come a log way, and can do...what....90% or so of all functions now? Give or take.
