Question Need help configuring wireless card in Suse 10.2

I need help in setting up my safecom pci wireless card on my pc running a fresh install of Suse 10.2.
I've been trying to run my main pc on Linux for the past 4 years (I've had enough of Bill Gates's Extortionate monopoly on Opetating System Software) but have never found a distro that i realy liked,Untill now.Suse 10.2 is a lot more User friendly than previous versions and i have no problems with it yet apart from my wireless card.
I am no idiot but i can't get the bloomin thing to work,And all the instructions i find might as well be in Aramaic!!
So can someone please spend a little of their valuable time and Educate me so that i can finally give the Bird to Microsoft.I realy like Linux and if I can get my wireless to work I know I will stick with it,Thanks in advance,,Jon

Gday mate,

I have installed many different wireless cards on many different distros (including Suse).

Now, this SafeCom card, does it have a particular model?

Also to start, could you post the contents of these:

# lspci

# iwconfig

# ifconfig
