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)
3) Install the realvnc ontop of the SuSE configuration (only if you
decide you need the newer version.)
Hope this helps...

Actually, you just need to edit a file which specifies which windows manager you would like to use. However, because of diff. flavours in Unix/Linux, I'm not sure of the name.
