There also should be a file called: smb.conf.sample or something similiar in your samba folder. This has a lot of info on how to configure it.

Not sure in SUSE but you might try connecting to http://localhost:901 with a web browser, that is the default port for SWAT a GUI to configure samba.

Also has a couple really good modules for configuring samba.
