[driverloader] Problem with Dell Latitude D600, TrueMobile 1300

I'm working on a fresh install of SUSE 9.1 on my Dell Latitude D600
with TrueMobile1300 wireless (at least this is what WinXP Device
Manager tells me).  My problem is that after I use the Linuxant web
admin app to load what seems to be the correct windows driver -
BCMWL5.SYS - the web app still shows "No devices found" and "It seems
that your device is either not present or not supported by the
installed driver(s)."  The newly installed driver is still listed on
the web page, though:
Driver: bcm43xx
Vendor: Broadcom
Version: 06/13/2003,

iwconfig gives me nothing:

lo      no wireless extensions .
eth0  no wireless extensions .
sit0   no wireless extensions .

Is it possible I am not pointing to the correct windows driver? I have
tried the one referred to in WinXP Device Manager, as well as the one
available at http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/drivers.php.

Any help appreciated,
