    Can you elaborate a bit about yast didn't find your card? I assume you mean that you weren't able to connect to your wireless AP? Now to configure the card, all you have to do is: KMenu -> system -> yast -> network devices -> network card.

    Here you can configure your card to your hearts content.

    Ok, now try running this command as root to see if the system detects your wireless card:
    Code:
    lspci
    you should see a few entries most which are about other pci devices, e.g. video card, ethernet card. One of them should say something like "xxx Wireless card" or similar.

    Now, do you know what chipset the card uses?

    It doesn't matter if you are running gnome, yast and commands are the same for both DE.

    Ok so the card is detected, you just need drivers and firmware. I pretty sure that 9.3 comes with drivers for the card, I am not sure if 10 does. Seaarch in yast for any incidence of ralink and install these drivers. Alternatively you could google around and search for the drivers for SUSE.

    Another thing is to see this post: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/topic-48999.html

    Launch yast, goto Install and remove software, then search.

    Yes, there is an install and remove software, they could have changed the naming scheme in 10. When you launch yast, the left hand side shows the sub-categories, goto the one called software and then install and remove software or something which sounds similar to that.
