Probably not on the "live" CD. Assumed (my fault), that you had the whole distro.
And you should not have the tarball, unless that's your only option. Get the RPM file, and install from packages, it's far easier. For that you need the "rpm -i <package name>" command. Get the software from openSUSE.org website, http://software.opensuse.org/search
Before that, though...try to run Yast->Network Devices->Network Settings, and see if your card is defined, but not configured. If so, give it a quick set-up, use DHCP, and you should be ready to roll.
On a totally useless note for this topic, if this is a new installation, I'd suggest downloading the entire 11.2 full distro, burn it to DVD, and do a fresh install. You'll get a LOT more packages and drivers right off the bat. At the very least, you'll get the compilers and other packages you need.
