trouble configuring wireless card on suse 9.3

I have suse 9.3 on my laptop, and I can't get it to configure my wireless network card. My hardware tool in the system tray sees that it is there, but when i go into yast to configure it, it will not detect it. I have tried to configure it manually but have not gotten it to work yet because I'm not really sure what I am doing. Its probably something easy that i just cant figure out.

Thanks for any help,

You will probably need to use ndiswrapper. It allows Linux to make use of your windows driver.

It comes with Suse, so install it from your distro cd/dvd.

Instructions on use are here -
