Wireless networking in SuSE 8.0 using PCMCIA

Has anyone got wireless networking to operate under SuSE 8.0 using a PCMCIA
card?

YaST2 seems to only offer ethernet and token-ring networking devices, and when
I insert the card I get the messages at the end of this Email appearing in
/var/log/messages.

I know the card is support and works under Linux, and that I'm not too far
from my access point, because I used it under RedHat 7.2 for about 3 months
from the same place as I'm attempting to use it now.

All help appreciated,

Al.
