Sorry mate, but I just read that thread I posted to you and can see how you would
not understand. He assumes you have knowledge that isn't included in the doc...
To do what Jeremy outlines, you will need to use either an editor or a console. I've
never used SuSE so I can't tell you "how" like I would in Slackware. You should have
some type of menu that will allow you to pick a text editor, or open a console. For
either one you will have to be superuser (root) to work in that /usr directory. So if
you can get a console, change from a normal user to root by issuing "su" without the
quote marks, which stands for superuser (root). Then enter your password. The
permissions for the file don't need to change, you just need to be root to do it, and
root has permissions.
Hope this helps. While it's an over-simplification, you obviously know some things
or have read somewhere to get to the point of wanting to install that driver this way
rather than using yast or whatever SuSE has for packages.
If you need more help with this driver issue, it would be better to search, and if you
don't find what you need, post in the Linux - Wireless Networking forum.
