Suse w/ ATI IGP320 and Broadcom Wireless - please help.

I've seen the post on ndiswrapper and everything, but was wondering if there's another way to do it. I've tried using linuxant driver installer, with no luck. I know there's gotta be someone that's done it. Also, is there a way to force a higher resolution on the ATI 320M - higher than 1024x768? I tried specifying the frequencies by hand, but everytime i try to test, it just goes to 1024x768, and when Gnome or KDE loads, it looks like 800x600. I appreaciate any help on this.

I have used ndiswrapper 8 on a presario 2175us with the broadcom and the 320m on mandrake 10. Ndiswrapper works perfectly and I have had no issues with the video drivers aside from the video out which I still haven't looked into that much. I got the wireless working though I found the documentation like most of linux documentation was either overly simplfied or written for those out there with a degree in rocket science.
