Sorry, I don't have suse installed on anything yet, but if suse has an rc.local somewhere in or under /etc/rc.d, you could add those lines to the end of that file, which is one way to do it.

It has been a while since I used Suse.
I would think there might be a boot up configuration tool in YAST somewhere.
