I have a USB Linksys Wirless-B USB Adapter (WUSB11v4) installation issues!

Ok i have never used or even set eyes on a Linux operating system before tonight, im computer savi, just not familiar with Linux OS. I have installed Linux Suse 10.2. Everything is fine except my a USB Linksys Wirless-B USB Adapter (WUSB11v4), which when i plugged it in hoping for something to happen maybe a prompt for the driver cd. Nothing happened, I have figured out that linux doesnt accept the driver disc that came with the product obvisouly windows based. Just wondered if anyone has any idea how to install the driver to computer my wireless router is in the other room so not possible to connect directly via ethernet. Any help would be appreciated, keep in mind i really do know jack about Linux.
Hope you can help, because hate having to use my laptop.
