Wireless driver for Thinkpad Z60T

I just installed SUSE 10.1 on my Thinkpad Z60T and cannot find a driver for the wireless card. The card is listed by IBM / Lenovo as a model "Thinkpad 802.11 ABG", apparently its a rebranded Atheros card.

IBM / Lenovo says they don't support linux for this model. Any ideas?

Thanks

you're probably going to have to go with NDISWRAPPER. I'm pretty sure it's included on the suse 10.1 discs. Install that, then you're going to have to get the windows drivers. It's pretty straight forward

I got close, I can see the card, but so far cannot connect to a WPA network. While this does seem like it should work, it seems like it will be a bit of a pain when switching from one network to another, like I do several times a day. I'll keep trying with this to see if I can get connected to at least one network.

Thanks

I ended up getting the drivers from http://madwifi.org/ . Worked very easy and native.
