now the WiFi doesn't work, is there any driver for that.
OpenSuSE 10.2 is old. You might get better results, since this is a new installation, to install 11.0. More hardware is supported, and your card may work right off the bat.
You say the card is detected, have you tried to set it up and get an address? Have you tried to configure the WEP/WPA keys, and tried to get it going? What messages do you get when you attempt to make a connection?
