    Oh, that is not a real problem, as it can be solved by simply adding DNS entries to the /etc/resolv.conf file later.
    For this, open a terminal, log in as root (type "su", followed by root password) and type e.g.

    kwrite /etc/resolv.conf

    and change the IP there (that actually directs to your router) with a valid DNS entry. DNS entries from your ISP should be available with a google search.

    Or, if you haven't added DNS entries yet (or don't want to for now), but still want to access websites, type in the webbar


    then type in the appearing filterbar


    and double click on "false" where it says "disable ipv6". After th "false" got changed to "true", webpages should load normally again.

    I did it, and it worked. I'm posting this message with SUSE!

    Is it wrong to be this excited?

    Thanks VERY much for your help mate, and eveyone who replied to this post. I doubt it will be my last one here.

    thanks again.

    I've now done it proper! installed SUSE to my hard drive, and I'm using it now!

    All I need to do now is to work out how to play mp3s & dvds etc, and I can start to think about ditching windows for good.

    Ok, one more question. All seems to work fine now, apart from when I re-start suse. The /etc/resolv.conf file seems to revert back to the setting i change, even though I save the file. It does say 'this file is generated by network manager - do no change' though, so I'm guessing the nameserver is something i've inputed trying to set it up.

    The nameserver it defaults to : is the setting for my router.

    Don't worry, this is normal, and easily changed to make it static.
    You can have it set statically by changing the sysconfig entry in YaST > System > sysconfig editor /etc/sysconfig/network/config/MODIFY_RESOLV_CONF_DYNAMICALLY
