Edmax Wireless Card Can't be Installed on SUSE 10.1

I have a Edimax EW7318 which is running Fine on Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04.
But i have recently Installed SUSE 10.1 Enterprise Desktop on one of the Computer in our Company

The loading instructions are as follows:

For 2.6 series kernel:
a) go to STA/Module directory
run cp Makefile.6 Makefile

b) $make all

c) cp rt73.bin /etc/Wireless/RT73STA/ # copy firmware

d) run /sbin/insmod rt73.ko (as root)
/sbin/ifconfig rausb0 inet YOUR_IP up

For big endian platform:

I fall at the first hurdle a) I assume that this means open up a terminal and cd to the STA/Module directory. I cannot find an STA/Module directory on my machine or on the CD. There is no Makefile on the CD

But i can't Locate the Directory STA/Module to start wit.

Can anyone help decipher the above.

The CD contains a Suse directory with the following files
A readme file containing the load instructions as above;
Load and unload files

Go to the Ralink site and download what you need. That CD obviously doesn't contain the build files needed.
