Sorry if you find the question offending, but I do not know your computer skills, so: have you burned a bootable installation CD using the .iso file, or you just copied the .iso file onto the CD?

If you burned a bootable CD, then you should boot from the CD and yast should come up regardless of whether your SuSE is a paid or a downloaded, unpaid version.

Does your computer boot up from the CD?
You should at least get a command prompt.
