    Why do you need a 11.2 option in unetbootin?

    You have the disk image so choose "Image" "ISO" and select your downloaded
    image in unetbootin.

    I do not know if it works with unetbootin because someone reported a
    problem, but simply give it a try. If it does not work nothing is lost.

    I just tested the description from your original post
    (http://en.opensuse.org/Live_USB_stick)

    I used the dd command to create the stick and booted my netbook with it ->
    no problem so far (it does not like my screen resolution on it, but that has
    nothing to do with booting from usb).

    Did you try this also or do you have only a windows available to create the
    usb stick (I saw you downloaded a windows program)?

    In the link you showed in your first post there is a description about the
    software you mentioned to make an usb stick.
    It is also described what to do to use a iso file.

    If you have problems because it has the ending .iso and not .img you should
    simply rename the .iso file to have .img at thge end.

    That is the easist solution.

    If then the usb stick still does not boot I am sure it is

    1) your usb stick is somehow broken
    2) your settings on the notebook to boot from usb is somehow not correct

    Ensure that no other usb device is connected to the notebook when you try to
    boot from usb to avoid confusion.

    The notebook says that?
    What is the exact message?
    Does it boot and then some time later there is a problem?
    Does it not even boot at all from the stick?

    Please give more details, I cannot really guess how this looks like.

    Of course there is third possibility

    3) your notebook hardware is simply incompatible with opensuse

    What hardware is it?

    have u done this
    Select your ISO image, by clicking the folder icon near the "Image File" box and navigating to the directory where your ISO file is. If you don't see your image, be sure to select "*.iso" into the "File Name" box.
