Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I use Acer aspire 4520 with SLED on it. Among other things, the first and foremost is that I want to connect to Internet via a LAN (no proxy).I tried configuring it through Yast but of no help. Lspci is as under:
This seems to me that most of your hardware are not known by SLED. This is self explanatory since SLED was release almost 2 years ago if I'm not mistaken. And this Acer model has been recently released this year.
Since you are using an older version of SUSE, try using their OpenSUSE 10.3. Video, sound and webcam works for me. Mine is Acer Aspire 4520G. Just stick to YaST when configuring your hardware. If you don't want to upgrade yet. Update your version of SUSE immediately. Don't forget to add the NVIDIA Repositories.
The advice is sound: either, change to openSUSE 10.3 or use the commercial support you paid for (SFD copies came with free updates for 6 months.) If you do not want to pay for support, that's fine, but you'll be happier using a non-commercial distro.

Well, I'm certain it means "webdevil". I was "translating" the content of the webby one's post... but, since it turns out to be too cryptic of me, I apologize. I'm content to let the matter drop without further comment.
Have you tried ndiswrapper for your wifi?
Have you tried the forcedeth driver for your ethernet?
... you see, you have provided zero feedback to the suggestions on this thread - it's kinda discouraging.
