> So I downloaded the latest version. I am new to Ubuntu so I am not so familiar with the commands. In the readme it says compile kismet with "make" I am assuming that "make" is some kind of compiler or a command in the terminal.

Here is what you should have to do, all of them in terminal/commandline:

@:~$ sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev libpcap-dev libnl-dev build-essential wireshark libpcre3-dev
@:~$ wget
@:~$ tar xzf kismet-2009-11-R1.tar.gz
@:~$ cd kismet-2009-11-R1/
@:~/kismet-2009-11-R1$ ./configure
@:~/kismet-2009-11-R1$ make dep
@:~/kismet-2009-11-R1$ make
@:~/kismet-2009-11-R1$ sudo make suidinstall

The first apt installs all the stuff you should need to successfully compile.
