I don't know Suse, so I don't know exactly what you want to do, but gdm has a feature that sounds like it *might* be what you want--so I'll describe how to use it, just in case that's what you want, and just in case you use gdm.
The next time you're at the login screen, select the `configure' ('ish) option, and enter the root password. There should be a `automatically log in this user when gdm starts:' (and/or 'after time:') in one of the tabs. Enter your username.
Disclaimer: I haven't used it, and IIRC Suse uses KDE by default. Hope this helps.
