Checking for ieee80211 and Crypto??

Ok, in order to get this driver ipw3945 (for my wireless cart) to work, I need to have ieee80211 installed which in turn needs arc4 and crc32 algorithms. How do I make sure these are installed (I think they are, I tried to install them anyway).

I started YaST and then went to the software management applet. I searched for CRC32 and clicked on "Provides" and "Requires". It says that the standard Linux kernel provides crc32. I didn't look for the other modules.
