NDISWRAPPER WITH SUSE LINUX -- MINI-HOWTO
=========================================

Setting up ndiswrapper with SUSE Linux 10.2 requires the following
steps:

(1) Get an NDIS driver for your wireless network adapter. See
    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/ for lists of supported
    chipsets and driver links.

(2) Each driver consists of a <driver>.inf file and one or more
    DLLS. As superuser, install the driver with "ndiswrapper 
    -i <driver>.inf". This copies the driver to a directory below
    /etc/ndiswrapper/.

(3) Load the ndiswrapper module with "modprobe ndiswrapper". The
    system log /var/log/messages will indicate success or failure.

(4) To ensure that ndiswrapper will always use the same network
    interface name, call "ndiswrapper -m". This step is optional;
    usually ndiswrapper will not change to a different interface.

(5) Configure the wireless network adapter in YaST, Network Devices,
    Network Card. Choose "Other", Device Type = Wireless, Configuration
    Name = 0, Module Name = ndiswrapper. Leave the other fields to
    their defaults. Configure the wireless settings.
