It should install off of the HD just fine, I've done it in the past, but that was way back in the 5.1 days.(!)
What you will need is some sort of bootable media (it used to be floppies) that will boot into the installation program. From there you will want to point the installer to the directory where you stored your files.
As for filesystem types, NTFS may be a problem if the SuSE installation program doesn't grok NTFS.
If you have broadband available, I'd use the FTP install option instead.
