Ubuntu has a feature (can't recall name) that will search for drivers (proprietary, I think) and install them very easily. This Ubuntu feature was of immense importance in getting my @$#%$ broadcom wireless working on a laptop.
Is this feature in LMDE or the Mint main edition?

If you print it out and follow step by step, while connected by ethernet just like you have to be in Mint, it's perfect and not at all difficult, just a bit different. If that's the only hangup give it a go in a separate partition. You'll be surprised how easy it is.
