The 3945 works with suse out of the box, the 4965 does not. perhaps in
11.0

I cannot confirm this. For me, the 4965 worked from the beginning with
openSUSE 10.3.

It definitely didn't work in sled 10sp1,

This is not surprising. SLES10 is based on which version of openSUSE? SLES10
was released in July 2006 and SP1 in June 2007. Even in 10.2, released in
December 2006, there was no support for iwlwifi. I used this version and I
had to install the windows driver via ndiswrapper. But 10.3, release in
October 2007, supports iwlwifi, as stated in the release notes:
http://www.suse.com/relnotes/i386/openSUSE/10.3/RELEASE-NOTES.en.html#14
However, there are some bugs in the iwlwifi drivers shipped with 10.3. Many
should be fixed in the available update to version 1.2.0 last December.

There is however the chance we backport wireless drivers for SLED 10
in a Service Pack. (I however do not know exactly.)

Ciao, Marcus
