Ur path looks fine.  R u a root or a superuser? If u r a super user, i fear u will have a hard time though installations are not encouraged as root.
I think u haven't configure yet ur files. Try the command :

 ./configure

first.  Does it work?

root is like the "Administrator" in windoze.

su = super user of the OS, they have the privilege of the root if the are activiated.

For a root to login to linux. Just type "root" as a username for login and type the password to login.

./configure is executed under the program folder which u want to make the driver.

I used this file:

linux-wlan-ng-0.2.0.tar.gz

What i did was :

1. tar -xzvf linux-wlan-ng-0.2.0.tar.gz

2. cd into this direcotry linux-wlan-ng-0.2.0

3. i type : "./Configure"

4. And if successfull, u can do make things.

thanks that did it! just one more thing, after the first 4 questions it asks for the source directory and it gives a default one of /use/src/linux that doesn't work for me.  do you know what it would be on suse linux?

Congratulations , good to hear that.
Most welcome ;)

Sorry, i never used SUSE before but, this option u can try to find which is the directory for SUSE to store the source codes.

Try this command to locate the source directory, it might help
1. type "updatedb"
2. type ----> locate "src"  (src or other few keywords)

Optionally u may search the net or go to SUSE main tech site to see the file system structure to identify it.
