I'm an NSLU2 user although I've reflashed mine with Debian Etch, and I presume you are using the original firmware? If so, it should reveal itself on the network as a Windows share. When you say you can access it via its IP address, do you mean you can use the web interface?
I'm not familiar with SUSE but you should be able to access Windows shares without downloading anything extra. Since you have a Windows machine, share a folder on that, ánd see if you can see that on your Linux machine via the network? Often you must specify your server in the format \\aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd\sharename on your Linux PC.
On my Kubuntu machine, I can see Windows shares via a feature called "Remote folders" on my taskbar. On SUSE it may be called something different, but it should be there.
Edit: doh! I just realised your post was two years ago, so I doubt you're still waiting for an answer! Oh well, hope it helps someone...
