Have you considered reading the OpenSuse documentation. You probably have it installed in /usr/share on your system. If not, you should see the documentation at the OpenSuse website.

I have never done this, but here is a link

Upgrading SUSE 11.x to 12.1

However, someone in openSUSE forums seems to think that 11.2 to 12.1 should be a fresh install. Here is the link.

Here is the link

you have Internet connection so download the Network upgrade, burn it to CD then reboot your computer with the CD in and follow the steps.

I will suggest that for the upgrading purpose you actually plug your computer to a router instead of doing it wireless.

If your current installation has Gnome desktop manager Gnome 3 is what you are going to get final product. If your computer can't handle Gnome 3 there is a way to roll it back turning the roll back mode.

Also depend on your connection you might need to leave it upgrading overnight

Good luck to you!
