man chkconfig

If you:

chkconfig --list

you will get a list of all the processes that are run at startup.

Find the one you want to remove and:

chkconfig --del name

or remove for specific run levels if you need to.

It may be worth looking at you r /etc/modules.conf or /etc/modprobe.conf to check whether you need to removev any reference to the module concerned there as well.

It'll be wlan rather than ndis - Sorry should have made that a little more clear

Login as root ( superuser)
Edit  /etc/sysconfig/kernel    (you can use either gedit or nano/pico editors) and adjust  
entry reffering to ndiswwrapper in  MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT

The debug screen you posted clearly states ndiswrapper module is NOT SUPPORTED by Novel
so you should probably uninstall it
BTW you are running ndiswrapper version 1.10 ( use to come with SuSE stock DVD/CD set) and latest version ndiswrapper is 1.17

Here's what you can do with yast in CLI ( command line/text mode):
Running YAST Online Update From The Command-line

Type in  terminal window  yast to open YAST in text mode :

or type yast -l to get the list of yast modules

then uninstall malfunctioning module ( ndiswrapper) and install latest version
Hopefully YAST will overwrite wrong configuration files too?!?
