madwifi install/ SUSE 10.3


I am new to LINUX but I know I need to install Madwifi for my wireless card. Downloaded the RPM and installed it but the wireless card is still not recognized by YAST. Please advise.

That means the modules are NOT loaded! You can try (as root):
Code:
modprobe ath_pci
and then start configuring your interface.
