Atheros 5001X and Suse 9.1

I installed SuSE 9.1 Pro on my Toshiba Satellite A-25 (2.8Ghz 512RAM
DVD Burner model). I am having trouble finding a driver to work with the
integrated wi-fi and was wondering if anyone had found anything. It is
using the Atheros AR5001X chipset. In Windows XP it is treated as 802.11b
but as I have read the card can actually be a a/b/g card depending on the
driver. All I need is 802.11b as that is what my access point supports.
I boot , on Suse or Win XP.
In Suse, the freq, go to 5.0Ghz and no is easy set to 2.4Ghz.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
