Exclamation Trouble getting built in Wifi to work with Suse 9.1 (HP laptop)

I'm a total newbie with linux and installed it and worked fine. If I connect my laptop with a network cable, internet workes fine, but it seems like my wifi doesn't work. Are there drivers/software I need to install, or to configure my computer? I have a HP presario notebook with a broadcom 802.11g wlan built in.

You at least need to configure the card.
SuSE has a YaST module for this if it detects your card then it may
be as simple as filling in the forms.

If it doesn't recognise the card you need to find out which chipset
the builtin thing uses. "lspci -n" is likely to be helpful.
