    I don't condone snatching someone's internet connection, and I believe it's illegal. That said, you probably just have to set the SSID in YaST; you could just see what Windows finds the SSID as (they must have SSID broadcast on, a bad idea but I think it helps extend your wireless range).
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
