The do the same for Ubuntu. You will probably not be able to log on as root but you can log on to your normal Ubuntu user account. I just tested this. You don't need to be root to get a listing using lsmod in Ubuntu. I don't know about OpenSuSE.
lsmod > lsmod-ubuntu.txt
Then you find your wireless module in each list. It probably has a name similar to the manufacturer of the wireless NIC. Compare the two lists.
I don't know how much detail you need. The OpenSuSE listing is probably going to end up in the root account's home directory for OpenSuSE while the Ubuntu listing is going to end up in the home directory of your normal Ubuntu user unless you plan ahead and put them in the same place from the start.
