Question Linux and WiFi

How do I connect to my home network(802.11b)
using Novell SUSE LINUX 10.1?
I have a HP KAYAK XU/550X running Novell SUSE LINUX 10.1
and Windows XP.
Can I install and connect my
USB LinkSYS Wireless-B (Model WUSB11v4) Network Adapter?
How do I install and connect this Network Adapter?

Do you have any suggestions?
Thank You
Bob Whitman

So I would plug the usb wifi card into the computer and see if it reconizes it. You can check YaST to see if it does. Then I would use Network Manager which in under Desktop Apps in the System bar. From there it should be in the bottom left side of the screen a little icon. Click on it and it will display the networks in range. Click on yours and type in the WPA/WEP and go.

Hope it helps.
