Better still, look for the tex tools so that you can convert them to PDF, HTML or text.

No no Bert, no can do. You need latex to be able to use those tools.

On the second thought, LaTeX should be somewhere on Suse CDs. There should be no Linux distribution without LaTeX.

It actually is on the suse cds, but the package is called tetex, as that's the latex distribution used.

Google for "not so short introduction latex" and you will find a PDF that will get you started with the language. There are other tutorials on the web as well.
