If I remeber correctly, with SuSE 9.1 you need to configure the
interface manually and set the module to use as ipw2200.

In YaST network configuration, you need to select the 'Other (not
detected)' entry and then set all the fields manually.

Select 'Device type' as wireless and enter ipw2200 as the module. Then
carry on with the config as normal.

Only since SuSE 9.2, the card is detected by YaST.
