Remark

10.2: (6) Use the driver from rt2x00.serialmonkey.com because the bundled driver works only a few times.
(14) Install the sdricoh_cs driver (from sourceforge) to enable the reader. It only reads SD. It does not work with MMC and MS is untested. Writing is not enabled by default and is untested.

10.3: (2) Using ATI fglrx driver.
(6) Using NDiswrapper with the driver neti2220x64. WEP is ok, not tested with WPA. Follow the instructions in the "how to install wlan" howto at suselinuxsupport.de wireless networking forum.
