I have one of these in an old PII/233mhz maching running SuSE 8.2, and it works great! I didn't have to do a thing...SuSE just picked it up upon installation, unlike RH which was a real pain in the ass. I did check on the chipset, and it's a Prism, so you might want to give those drivers a try. I had to use these drivers as well on RH. Good luck!

Jay,

I'm using one of these cards, it worked well on 8.1 and was automatically
recognised. However on 8.2 it was being detected as a WLAN NG compatible
card rather than using the native Orinoco driver that works fine.

Firstly I'm using Kernel rather than external PCMCIA that should hopefully
fix the "beep-boop" problem.

I then followed the SuSE guide for getting wireless cards to work:

Have a look at the troubleshooting section, make sure you bind the orinoco
driver to the the unique entry you require for your card.
