What kind of reinstall do you desire? Are you wiping this system clean or you trying to repair a system that isn't functioning correctly?

Possibly because the system was too damaged to repair? I'm just guessing here as you have not stated what your issues with the old system was. Hard to help you if we have to read your mind. It might have been possible to fix your system without a reinstall or it might not.

my issue was to free some spaces from '/' root as it is nearly 98% used
I used /dev/hdc7 to allocate /usr from / (root) to free spaces
mount /dev/hdc7 to /mnt
cp /usr to mnt/usr
rm /usr from / (root) to free spaces
it seems what I did above it does not work with me.
Could you pls tell me how to free spaces in / (root) ?

I don't have enough information to properly help you.

I would need to see the contents of your /etc/fstab file and the output of the df command taken at "/"

If this is a new install I assume you have no data you wish to keep? If so it may be simpler to reinstall again and wipe your old partitions. If you DON'T take the defaults you can hit "partitioning" when you are prompted for it and ditch the default layout Suse offers you and set up the system the way you need it. It is a good idea to create separate partitions for /boot & /home and you can take that further and create partitions for /usr and /opt if needed.
