it’s open. sled might be it but I don’t mess around with this stuff much so I wouldn’t know how to use said command.
@Akoellh; I’m stuck with suse 10.0 for reasons, I have a partitioning problem (not enough space in /home for an update to 11.0 ETC.) and I have some software I don’t think I can replace easily… I’m not even sure where I got most of it acutally… (and I need it)
but back to the topic at hand, no firmware needed huh? so I should just be able to link it up and scan for networks with what ever programs I’ve got?
further what I’m asking is where would such devices be set-up in yast2? ‘network devices’ doesn’t seem to have a wireless option…

one the problems is that most folks here use openSUSE 11.1 daily, and
moved off of 10.0 in May 2006, when 10.1 was released [or soon
thereafter…i went from 9.3 to 10.1 or .2 and never saw 10.0]…
who can remember what the YaST in 10.0 even looked like? [there were
LOTS of changes from .0 to .1, and each later also had huge changes]
i think your best bet might be to use google (it creeps the forum and
archive here) in a site specific mode to dig out your answers…as an
example, try this example search string:
site:opensuse.org wireless ralink rt2570 “10.0”
what you might find is that Akoellh is correct (he most usually is)
and either that card ‘just works’ or won’t work, ever…and you are
faced with upgrading or not using wireless…
if i might venture to muse: if your hard drive is (nearly) full, and
software you need may not be easily found again…then you should
think seriously about this well worn phrase: If it ain’t broke don’t
running 10.3 and looking to jump soon to something else…
