I've additionally seen another workaround here:
I don't have 2 DVD drives. I also tried the workaround and it didn't work. I'll try a few more times though. I don't have 2 DVD drives. I also tried the workaround and it didn't work. I'll try burning a new DVD though.
inside the howto there are several links to other howtos if it does not work... did you also follow these posts? if so, most probably the card is not working... it is just curious that for some people it works, for others it does not... strange...
you know, the problem is the following: if througout any linux distribution (and I hope you did check that by googling) there is no guy who got this card working, there will be also no chance in suse... Usually, if one encounters hardware problems, I recommend opensuse since they have a very good hardware support out of the box and they are very fast... for instance, in the case of the new intel 4965abgn cards they already have compiled kernel modules as rpm-packages (iwlwifi driver, which is still in beta mode) and it works...
so, also I am now a little bit confused and don't think there is a way to get this card running...
please don't be angry that I told you to google, but it was very strange that few people told "it works" and others do not...
