Dificult call weither this is a VNC setup problem or a X-Windows, see
that VNC includes it's own X-Windows startup...

But you're best bet would be on a SuSE list since you have that specific
flavor, and SuSE delivers a perconfigured version of VNC.

Unfortunatetly you didn't mention which version of SuSE you've installed
so I cannot say where to look nor what to do.  (Thier setup changed

So If I was you, I would:
1) install the SuSE version of VNC.
2) read the /usr/share/doc/packages/vnc/README.suse,
   where the suse people explain how they set up vnc for you.
   (Also the /usr/share/doc/releasenotes if you got version 9.0)
and optionally,
3) Install the realvnc ontop of the SuSE configuration (only if you
decide you need the newer version.)

Hope this helps...
