Thumbs down 10A4 oSUSE; Unable to perform Internet Install fm Verified CD. Lack 2915 WiFi USR5410

openSuse releases still not including WiFI Support? *Q1* Why SUSE10.1 not offer a respin DVD (Inet ISO) after making fixes for the last release fiasco.
*Use Network device: FTP, HTTP, NFS, SMB/CIFS (Window Share) or TFTP? *Q2* Which option should use? Trying to install using WiFi @ public Library.
DHCP = Automatic
WARNING Unable to establish DHCP configuration.

I have booted into XP pro from a recent DL of `10.2A4 install from Internet CD' numerous times, Verify CD =OK.
But when I tried to complete a new installation of 102a4 from the Internet I have no luck. Tried HTTP, TFTP and the 1st failure was NFS (default).
Was hoping Suse release would finally have WiFi Mobile support included for Intel 2915 * mini-PCI card.* (or USR 5410 PCMCIA) and would work one or the other so that I could try an Install from Internet option. No Luck. Guess I will go back to trying fc6 test3 version of a distro which does offer respun DVD for download from Internet.
Did I pick wrong Network Device? The help on my DT versions of 10.1, 32 or 64, do not appear to have the information either.

Bill TY will Check out KNemo-the KDE Network Monitor KNemo offers a network monitor similar to the
one found in Windows. For every network interface it displays an icon in the systray

Try researching.
OK, anyway. Shipped with KDE, SUSE 10.1 has useful applet which is called "KNetworkManager". It starts with OS and automaticly detects all wireless connections within your area.
