Sounds like a hardware problem - SuSE pretty good at finding working hardware - my own card is Realtek and YaST found it no problem. Could be card not seated correctly in PCI slot or could be not working.
If you have driver disk and dos disk there's probably setup and diagnostic program you could run - I have had problems before with NICs that have plug and play mode or NE2000 compatible mode.
The card has worked, but very intermittently. The annoying thing is that it shows up on the hardware info on YaST, but it doesnt work. I also notice that eth0 is not shown in ifconfig, and that /dev/eth0 doesnt exist.
