Replying to my own question (in case this might be useful to anyone 
else), I ran "ifdown wlan0" followed by "ifup wlan0" -- and this solved 
the problem.

BTW, I can't remember the specific kernel number for 9.1 SuSE.  But, 
this a.m. I had the ".104" version and used the ".104" version of the 
driverloader.  The loader could not locate my hardware after I loaded 
the driver and licensed the loader.

However, by this p.m., the ".108" kernel version was available from SuSE 
updates.  I downloaded the ".108" driverloader rpm, and everything went 
smoothly.  (I'm using the smp version).
