    Just take a copy of the files you need (probably under /etc).

    For example, if suse uses xorg, you'll want /etc/X11/xorg.conf for the display settings. Someone familiar with suse might be able to tell you the location of the wifi settings.

    Post-installation, copy your backed up files to their former location to restore the settings.
