Background Error "Suse 8"

Hi All:-)
I’m completely new to Linux and have just installed “SuSe 8.0” on my other computer system, on a new hard drive, all was going well until I tried to alter the background colour in “Gnome” and the system locked up with the message “Error: Application background- properties-capplet” process 1437 has crashed due to a fatal error, visit Gnome application crash page for information, which seems to be a link , but without any response.
Can anybody give me advice as how to clear this error, as it reappears each time that I go onto “Backgrounds.
Please go easy on me as I have only ever used “Windows until now.
Thanks for any help: Chris

Go to look for another Chris's signature (acid kiewpie), he has a link to show you how to convert from windows.
