I think you need to give more details...such as your hardware.

I'm running SuSE 9.2 on a notebook with zero issues and it's been a very positive experience.

Are you doing an upgrade or fresh install? Is that the only error?

One very important thing to learn in linux is to use the console (or shell). In suse you can get it from
start menu>> System >> Terminal >> Konsole

In that shell, you can issue different commands .. df - report filesystem disk space usage. It tells u how much of space you have used on all your hard drives.
for sounds you can do
alsaconfig
in the same shell. It is very useful.. learn how to use it.

Good Luck
