If you have wired ethernet, you can build madwifi modules from the
debian madwifi-source package. (in the standard debian non-free section
of the repo) Module assistant is best for this. If the file you made
isn't working, I can only guess you might have a typo in it, but at any
rate, you can pass the kernel parameter at boot time. when the grub
screen comes up, hit 'e' and you can scroll down to the kernel line, hit
'e' again and add "nocrt=1" to that line, then hit enter and b and the
kernel will boot with that option.
