If I had to guess, you either need to install madwifi .9.0: 

or upgrade your kernel (probably a security update), and install this  

You'll need to resolve the dependancies and get one of those installed.

Notice you have, so you'll need to get that to match the  
version encoded in the rpm's filename. Either upgrade your kernel and  
install the 0.9.1 package or just install the 0.9.0 package. You'll  
probably need to uninstall the 0.9.1 utility package and install the  
older one too, if you go that route.

I'm betting if you run your security updates through yast your kernel  
will be bumped to though.
