Are you talking about your home directory using Nautilus?

check in /etc/fstab to see if you have a /mnt/windows or anything with Win or windows in the name. If you dont. You'll have to check with whatever your partition viewing software is, find out what drive windows is on... (/dev/hda1? hda2? hda6? hda7?) and add an appropriate line to your /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab files so you can mount it up Suse was just being a lot more user friendly in setting it up for you.
