On Suse 10.1 the Madwifi normally does not belong to the Distro anymore.
So it seems tha you have to download the actual Sources of madwifi.
Also you have to install your Kernel Headers/Sources and eventually to
Bild your own Kernel ( so that you could build/compile your own Module
from the madwifi Sources ) I think installing the Kernel Headers/Sources
should be enough.
( ? depmod -ae ? ) -> could be executed by make install
You should get the Modules ( i hope without errors )
and try to load with

iwconfig should show you also ath0 and wifi0
Now you could configure the device with Yast
I am using madwifi on my Laptop with Suse 10.1 and also have installed
it on an other Laptop with 10.1 and Atheros Hardware - it works great.
In case your Problem ist Distrospecific you could get Help from me direkt
if this Info isn=B4t enough.

Nope. We provide SuSE RPMs that can be installed using the usual ways
the packet manager provides (don't ask me, I'm no SuSE guy :)). They can
be found at http://madwifi.org/suse
