Your datacard, like most USB/3G cards, is probably in CDROM mode. A brief Google search turns up lots for getting this to work in Linux...and that's always a good place to start.
  • Install usb_modeswitch via "sudo zypper install usb_modeswitch"
  • Run usb_modeswitch. This 'flips' the device into modem mode. Use network manager or wvdialconf to set up your connection, according to your carriers instructions.
  • To log in as the root user, type in "su -", then enter the root password. If you do NOT KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING, DO NOT LOG IN AS ROOT!!!!. Root can delete/change/edit ANYTHING, and you can very, VERY easily make your system unusable. Use root sparingly, and ONLY when needed.
