driver for Realtek 8185 wirless card

ive just got a micronet SP906GK pci wireless cad which according to lspci used the Realtek 8185 chip.

02:0a.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8185 IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 20)
i belive that support for realek chips is good in linux

does anyone know of a driver for this chip?
or will i need to look into ndswrapper?

im using suse 1.2 on a 32bit i686 box

any help would be usefull.
