    Need to get some info from you first about how your drives(s) are set up.

    Open a terminal and type
    Code:
     su
    followed by your <superuser> password.

    Now type
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    and then post the results here.

    This will show if your swap partition has been set up properly along with other info such as the drive(s) capacity.

    I'm a bit confused, you HAVE installed SuSE but can't run yast, or you can't install suse neither?
