Madwifi driver/ Wireless Netgear PCI card


New to LINUX using SUSE 10.3.
Trying to install Madwifi drivers on SUSE 10.3 to support Netgear wireless PCI card. Downloaded the RPM and installed it using terminal window. MAKE, MAKE INSTALL. YAST still does nt recognize the wireless card. Please advise.

madwifi/ suse 10.3

After running the config I get:
1:madwifi ###################################[100%]

But when I run IWCONFIG I get:

lo no wireless extentions

eth0 no wireless extentions

eth0 no wireless extentions

I thought there should be an ath0 if the driver is working.

I am appreciating the help.
