If you're happy editing the .xml file by hand look for the section that starts

    <packages config:type="list">
then add in the package name as for the other packages you'll find there.

You'll also need to make sure the rpm is in a repository that AutoYaST looks at. You can specify repositories in the .xml file like so - you may have such a section already.

    <add_on_products config:type="list">
If you want to use a GUI tool you can edit the AutoYast file using the Autoinstallation module in YaST - you'll find it in the Miscellaneous section. That's actually harder to explain than hacking it by hand but there are plenty of guides out there.
