mirc? That's crap compared to the IRC clients in Linux.... most popular is probably xchat in X but you can choose from probably dozens of them, epic, bitchx, mozilla chat, and i even think GAIM supports it to now...

Mazilla has a chat client built into it. It can be accessed by one of the small icons at the bottom-left .

I'm sure Suse comes with X-Chat...

If not: www.xchat.org

Go there and download X-Chat.

I think SUSE also comes with Mozilla . So you can easily use Mozilla chat.
