Suse Linux problems


Ive Just installed Suse Linux onto my harddrive and have the following questions/queries so if anyone can answer them it would be great.

1.I have a USB Packard Bell CCO-3U wireless optical mouse that i want to use but unfortunatley the computer does not Autodetect it and the driver that came with it is a Windows .exe file. My questions here is a/ is there anywhere i can download a driver to mouse
B/ Does Linux recognise .EXE files ?

2. I have tried to install my Modem but SUse linux does not autodetect it and when i go into the YAST control centre module i have tried setting the modem device section to ttyS0, and ttyS1,ttyS2 etc but still the modem does not work, any tips ?

3.Do windows applications run on Linux ?
