    Thanks Gonzo
    I had tried zypper and it wasn't found - so I thought yast wouldn't find it either.
    But it was there.

    Just an addition:
    Note that you will get the latest version if you enable the Mozilla community repository. Seems to work fine here, for NNTP at least.
    You'll also get Firefox 3 through that repo.
