Most programs can be installed via a program called Yast. You will find it in the menu Yast (administration settings). Most hardware and system configuration can be done in Yast.
Yast-Software-Software Administration is were you will install update or remove most programs.
For sound be sure that you have enabled the sound system,
If this does not work then open a console and type
then the root password
this will make you root temporarily
If this does not work then let us know what version of Suse and what the sound hardware is. If you don't know what sound card
then as root in a console type
this will list all the pci devices post the result and we can be of further help

Windows user too Ex-Windows User of 22yrs., I'd say Yes The "Sound" is the worst to configuire, then the GPU lol
Anyway, I'd let, PulseAudio do all since that is what it seems to me the direction there going, PulseAudio is like a "Audio Manager" but better.

It is Foolproof ! for playing mp3's, Because of the way it does stuff, heh
