If you're sure that you installed the right package from the Suse disk (I don't know what that would be as I don't use SUSE), it should be available from the command line.

 

Example:

ndiswrapper -i /path/to/windows/inf

 

will install the windows driver for the wireless card.

 

If it doesn't work, make sure ndiswrapper is installed with:

 

find / -name ndiswrapper

 

 

If that doesn't work, then you installed the wrong package.

Maybe we should start over ...

 

su

<enter root password>

ndiswrapper -l <--------- this will show you what drivers are installed.

ndiswrapper -e <driver name>

 

 

And then follow this guide: Ndiswrapper: Suse Install
