The last time I saw a routine for that, they just subtracted the divisor until the result went negative and then they added it back once.

Here's a little pseudo code.  This does not account for negative numbers as input.
; psuedo code...
mov a,dividend  ; the number to be divided
mov b,divisor   ; the number to divide by

loop:
sub a,b   ;subtract b from a
jmp positive, loop  ; do it again until the result is not positive

; if negative result, add it back Once
add a,b  ; and we're done
