    Only thing I would add at this time is:
    Generally I would advise anyone using such effects as compiz to NOT use auto login. If you ask me it's a security nightmare having it enabled.

    WHY: because sometimes the GUI throws a wobbly and you can get to the desktop. It's easier for less experienced users to then just login to icewm to repair the problem.
    ===========================================
    The, unless you feel really adventurous and tread the kde4 path. Then there is loads to go at.

    Packman repo, I think has lots of Mac effects, trays, etc.. you can use in gnome

    It would help if you tell us what sort of NIC you are using. As you say replaced, I guess PCI.

    So in a terminal do:

    lspci


    post result here or just the part we need if you can see it

    There is a Hardware page here:
    Hardware - openSUSE

    You may be able to find your ethernet card there

    You might want to start a new thread on this in the right area, and use the forum rather than PM's, then everyone can have input, you will get better help that way
