Thanks for the heads-up. I'm trying to get wireless working with SuSE 9.1 Pro 
and a Linksys WPC54G card. So far no luck with the ndiswrapper 0.6 included 
w/ SuSE 9.1. Looks like I need to go to a newer version.

Any SuSE folks out there with pointers specific to ndiswrapper 0.11 and SuSE 
9.1 Pro? Right now the HP Pavillion is working using it's Ethernet port, but 
wireless but be fun. 

As a side note, I decided not to spend any more time trying to "fix" the WinXP 
side of the dual-boot. It won't start up, won't boot in safe mode, won't boot 
to a command prompt, won't let me do a new install with WinXP Upgrade CD 
new-in-box as of yesterday afternoon, won't let me do a downgrade to Win98SE 
- think I'll just get wireless working and leave WinXP out of the picture. I 
HATE Microsoft.
