You say you USED address 192.168.1.100. Did you type this address in when you were building the system?
Since you have other machines, and (I'm assuming), you're using either a Linksys or DLink home router, the DHCP range begins at 100. One of your other two machines may already have that address.
If you manually input that address, you also have to manually input other values, such as the default gateway. Without the default gateway, your system won't know how to get anywhere else. DHCP sets all this up for you.
Check your other machines first, to see what addresses they have. If none are using the address you mentioned, try typing in (as root), "route add default gw 192.168.1.1", then try to access a web site. If that works, you can go in through Yast, and configure the default gateway for that interface. Personally, I'd just go to yast first, and change the interface to be DHCP, then reboot.
Also, FWIW, the latest OpenSuSE is 11.0.
