use "Wireless Device" to access the "Wireless settings" dialog in which to configure the operating mode,network name(ESSID),network ID(NWID),encryption key,and nickname.Press 'OK'
If your network card is a PCMCIA or USB activate the respective check boxes and press next,from page 90 Suse Linux 9.0 users guide,david

I had the same problem with REDHAT9. I was informed to try the KERNEL TAR file at the bottom of the list.

.. It works great now ..
