A few questions if you don't mind

Are these similar to the packages available here ->
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/isv:/microsoft/

Can these drivers be loaded (or be made to load) via the driver disk option
to the installer? (
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.dkms.devel/744)
  and if so is this an acceptable method to you for loading them?

What license are these drivers covered under?
