SUSE 9.1 locks up when configuring Netgear FA311


I'm trying to get SUSE 9.1 to work with my Netgear FA311 NIC. Now, I know this NIC works (using it in Windows no problem, this is a dual boot machine). I have also had it automagically work in the following distros.

Red Hat 9
Fedora 1
Mandrake 8.2, 9, 9.1, and 10
Debian

Now, I have been trying to research it and see numerous references to this:

fa311-mac-address-fix.patch

That is supposedly addressed in a later version of the 2.6 kernel than SUSE 9.1 shipped with. However, without being able to get online in SUSE, I am unsure as to how to go about fixing the problem. Does anyone know what this patch does, and if I can do it myself by altering files manually?

Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.
