    Suse 8.2/Wireless/add driver


    My XP (sorry) wireless is through ZDWLan USB adaptor.
    I have downloaded the Linux driver for it, I have the file showing but haven't a clue what to do with it, where to put it/install it. Please can someone help in plain language?

    Sorry if I sound stupid, but I'm still finding my way round Linux.
    (I have Ubuntu on my laptop and ZDWLan works on there plug and play as Broadcom card doesn't want to know)

    Suse 8.2 is VERY old. It is not even supported by Suse anymore, it hasn't been supported since 2005!

    Get the newest version of Suse, or any other Linux distro that you may like to try. Then, we will be happy to help you.

    Broadcom chipsets will work on newer Linux distros. The best way is to use the ndiswrapper driver hack.NDISwrapper - Home

    Let me know which distro you end up with, so I can help you out. Suse has version 10.3 out now.
