I am running SuSE 10 with the KDesktop Enviroment. I cant seem to connect to any wireless hotspots. I got a laptop (not shure of at the moment) and i know its not hardware because i can get a list of connections, but i am not shure how to connect. Another question i have that has some to do with it is i found some drivers for the (PCMCIA) card in question, but i am not shure where or how to install the drivers. Thanks

If your wireless card is working, then you have no need for drivers. SUSE10 has pretty good support for wireless drivers right out of the box, so they are likely alright.

Use the program "networkmanager" to configure and manage your wireless connections. This link relates to using it with RedHat, but most will apply to SUSE.
