HELP with Suse 10.1 on Dell Laptop

Correction* I am running Suse 10.0* Sry

Hey, I am new to linux. I just got a new dell 6400 and am dual booting with Suse 10.1 and Windows, and would like to make the transition to just Linux, but i have some problems:

First is my wireless card is not working. I cant find anything that tells me how to set it up. So any info would be a great help. I have a wireless 1390 WLAN Minicard.
Second is my resolution will not change. It is at 800x600, and I try to change it but it always goes back to the same thing!

Any help would be welcome!

Wireless card:
to open a root console - open xterm (or terminal, shell, whatever it's called on Suse)
, type in the root password.
1) open a root console and type
ifconfig -a
and post the output.
2) in the same console, type
Post that output, too.
3) [lspcmcia] -- Post this, too.

1) In the root console:
cat /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
. One should work, one should not. Either way, post the output here.

With that info, we should be able to do something for you
