USB and network card issue at startup

Sometimes when i boot my laptop (acer travelmate 1312 lmi) into suse 10.0, it fails to detect my network and any usb-device. At first i thought it only happened when i reboot from windows xp into suse 10.0 (it's a dual boot system), but now it seems to happen at random.

I only installed 10.0 on the machine last week and everything seemed to work out of the box. Mostly it does, but sometimes...

I can manage now to get the network card working again without rebooting the system. This should give me a clue where to look, but so far i frankly have no idea.. As for usb i don't know if i could fix it manually after boot. I prefer my usb-trackball to work immediately anyways, not after manual tweaking..

Any help or suggestions are highly appreciated..
