[development] how to run new .install on installed module

Probably a simple problem but I don't find solution on d.o.

I have a D6 contrib module that did not use database before, but now it
does. The problem is that even though a .install file has been added, the
database is not created in case the older version of the module is enabled
already, not even after running /update.php.

http://drupal.org/node/323314 explains that ".install file is run the first
time a module is enabled" -- but how to make sure the initial database is
installed on an existing module? Is the only solution to solve it via
hook_update_N, detecting whether the table exists, and installing it -- even
though in fact we are installing, not updating?
