Hi all, recently got SuSE 9.2, but am having problems with my wireless card.

Here's one of the main problems, and it stems from my own lack of knowledge.

It has an intel mobile M Celeron processor with centrino technology and I have an intel pro wireless card,

but I also apparently have a broadcom 54G max performance card as well, I believe. All I know is that in windows, the drivers find both pieces of hardware. Do I have two wireless cards, or what the hell is going on, here? I'll post my exact system specs below.

Trust me, I'll probably have some more easily answered questions after this, I've just never had to manually get hardware to work.
