Question Wi-Fi card for SuSE

I'm totally new to linux and I have no clue at all on how to set up my network in linux and to connect to the internet through it. So first i better tell you my set up:

Sitecom Modem (ADSL 512k) and Hub <-- CABLE --> Netgear WiFi point <-- WiFi --> My PC (Sitecom PCI WiFi WL-121)

Ok well, linux finds a driver even though there is no official one on the sitecom site. An I'd like a basic guide on how to set up the WLAN if possible?

At this moment I'm typing through Win XP with everything setup. Also my wlan has a wep key.

the way i did it when i had to configure my wireless card was to go into the console and type "iwconfig -help" that should tell you what to do from there.
