Help installing wireless card driver

My wireless card doesn't seem to be working for my laptop, so I thought I would try installing the driver. I'm using the SUSE distro, have a Xircom cardbus ethernet card, and am using the driver xircom_cb.o, which I was lead to believe should work. So how do I install this xircom_cb.o?

Suse may have some gui to do this, but to do it from the command line run:
insmod xircom_cb.o
I don't know how to set suse up to load it at boot, there should be file in /etc named modules, or modules.autoload or something like that, that you could add xircom_cb.o to do it, but I'm sure that's not the "Suse way", You may want to ask in the Suse forums.
