Wireless troubles with Novell SuSe Linux Desktop on laptop.

Hello, Im fairly new to unix/linux, and I loaded Novell's latest SuSe linux desktop on my old Dell C600 Laptop.

Now I have a linksys PCMCIA wireless network card, a WPC11 v4. The O/S reconizes it, but doesnt offer it any wireless options, shows that the wireless is disabled, and pretty much not there. It doesnt pick up and networks in range because I dont think its reconized or the right driver.

I was thinking that I can get it to work by adding something at the CLI, but what? And where?

Any help, references, tips, or opinions would be greatly appriciated! Thank you!
