The firmware is indeed not redistributable, but SuSE managed to make
set-up almost trivial in 9.1 by including the kernel module but then
requiring their users to download the firmware themselves.

The only thing they could have done better is to let users know when
the network is being set up; instead, there is a README in 
/usr/share/doc about it.

IMHO Fedora could do better :)
