Atheros not natively supported in Suse 10.1 , but you can download and run a Madwifi driver for your card after installing Suse .click here for a " madwifi how to " . madwifi stands for Multiband Atheros Driver for WiFi these are for Linux/Open source .

I would think using the user name and password that you set up when installing , have a google around , there is probably a Suse forum somewhere .
