ok, i thought so from the way you phrased your question (sounded kinda
like you were used to going out on the net and tracking down drivers
from all over, like that other system was doing last century, AND this
you should expect to find and install most everything you want/need in
one of the openSUSE repos…

i see caf4936 asked a more direct question and answer leads me to notice
you have nvidia graphics but i can’t figure out which, so i’ll wait for
a nvidia guru to fix that up…

i’m amazed that it didn’t “just work”…i can’t help with that either
(mine just worked, whew!)

well, when did you download that 11.0, i ask because it reached end of
life on 26 July 2010!! cite: http://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime
so, that might account for why your install didn’t “just work” (you have
a lot of hardware that hadn’t been thought of when 11.0 was released)…
so, i’d suggest before you spend a lot more time on that install, you
begin again, here: http://software.opensuse.org/
