Default NIC Issues

Hi All, been awhile!

I finally broke down and bought my first laptop...

Came with MS Vista Home Premium... I installed suse10.2 x86 64 as a dual boot sys and no problems there.

suse however cannot seem to start the Realtec RTL8101 etho card (see's it and I can configure it but that is as far as I get) or even identify the Atheros AR 5007EG wireless card. Vista has some issues shutting down the LAN cards when shutdown and so I disabled "wake on LAN" function and still no progress. I downloaded the drivers for the RTL8101 from Realtec and can't seem to install them the following is a summary of the install attempt.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong, or missing?

Code:
