How to give more space for applications?
Alright, Im out of space on my one partition (well almost I got like 120mb left). This is my main linux partition. Now I created a new 4GB EXT3 partition just for stuff to be installed on, but now where do I mount it, so that applications will be installed on this partition and not the other one thats almost out of space?

You could mount that new partition (it doesn't matter where, when I did something like this, I mounted it at a directory I called /aux), move all of your files from /usr to that directory, umount the new mount, and remount it onto /usr. This is assuming, of course, that your applications are installed mainly in /usr; I don't know anything about how SuSE handles things. If not, try /opt or /usr/bin.
mkdir /aux mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /aux <-- If the new partition is at /dev/hda2 mv /usr/* /aux umount /aux mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /usr
