Good to know I'm not the only one. Well, actually I haven't given this one too much of my time lately, due to busy work schedule and other obligations (blah blah you get the picture) but I wonder if it isn't extra tricky due to the fact that i'm trying to run 32bit windows apps on a 64 bit OS. I know suse 64 bit can run 32 apps but, it probably requires a little more tweaking than normal. More headaches.
These are all assumptions. I'm actually planning on reinstalling suse again for other reasons and after that I'll probably try tackling this problem again.
Sorry if I'm not too much of a help right now, but don't give up we'll figure it out. And if you find anything out, I'd be greatful for any info you might have.
