nvidia's linux drivers come with instructions and stuff...

hmmm... the keyboard problem sounds like it's just configuration... i've never used suse but i guess you probably have some sorta control panel in there where you can change your keyboard type and stuff... maybe you have a pc101 and you set it to pc104 or something like that... i'm not sure... pc104s are the ones with the windoze logo keys...
