fdisk/parted/cfdisk: command not found

Even under sudo they just don't show up. They have man pages and parted show up in the RPM directory.

Not all that familiar with sudo - does that change your path? Because they'd be in /sbin which probably isn't on your user path. If it does, then I don't know what's wrong. Could have been mis-installed, could have been deleted, could have gotten wrong perms, SuSE may just install a bunch of man pages and they never were installed. If it doesn't, you need to be root, anyway, to use them so just 'su'.

yeah, I am used to su too, but my last debian install it wasn't available so I used sudo.
