If you do a check I prefer to have the drivers included in the
software bundle, you can always copy items out of the bundle into the
extensions folder if you have use sudo.
Separate installers always end up missing. I rather have Kismac upon runtime check and ask permission to install drivers if needed.

Have a dmg, inside of which you have Kismac with drag-and-drop instructions on the side as well as having a tiny installer labelled "Wifi driver installer" or something like it. Then have Kismac check (on startup) if the installer ever ran (not just in the last update). - If yes, then launch Kismac. - If no, then tell the user to run the installer from the dmg (and provide a we address to redownload the dmg if the user deleted it).

Yeah, better idea. Much better. Tell me what goes where and I'll try and make one.
For the moment GTDriver is not very easy to install.
After compiling WiFiGUI.app and GTDriver.kext (both from Xcode, switch to Deployment target first) you have to run mkinstall.sh:
It creates an _inst directory. Then cd to this _inst directory and run the ./install_command:
