I'm not sure the specific RPM wrapper SuSE uses, but you can always fall back to "rpm -ivh package-name.arch.rpm".

I'm very sorry, I mis-read your post - your english is practically perfect. :S

If you want to install software across a network, the easiest way to do this would be to use SSH. Make sure that you install both sshd (the ssh "server") and ssh itself.

If SuSE comes with a graphical package management tool, scan through it for ssh and sshd.

One you get those installed on both computers, copy the file you wish to install to the computer you wish to install it on:
Code:
$ scp file-to.transfer  user@hostname/IP:/path/to/copy/to
user's password:
Then just simply use rpm to install it on the remote computer.

If you have any further questions, comments, frustrations, etc., be sure to post them, and we'll find a solution.

NOTE: In the code example where I have "hostname/IP" it can be either the hostname (which would need to be defined in /etc/hosts on the local computer) -or- the IP address of the remote machine.
