While this is likely not the answer your looking for, I would, if I were about to spend money on a book, plunk down my cash instead on a boxed SuSE set which, in my opinion, comes with some damn fine printed material.
The provided link is essential newb material - non distro specific mind you.
By the way, IIRC SuSE has a very comprensive browser based help system that links to howtos and the like - have you read these at all?
Most linux systems come with a lifetime's worth of info. Don't ignore it. There are some hidden gems all over the place.
