If you haven't, try this search to see it is compatible: click here
I'm not sure about SUSE because I run Xandros, but its probably similar, if its a DEB or RPM file, you should be able to just double click on it and it will install like Windows. If it a file ending in tz or tzr its a compressed file. I have found if double click on it it will show the contents, what I do is to find the readme file, this usually gives instructions on how to install the program via the consul. That's how it works with Xandros anyway.
Hold on, I read that Linux is compatiable with Windows programs such as "MS Office" during setup.... If this is true, then how do you install the programs, because they will have a .exe or .msi setup file!!!
Yes, you can install some MS applications in Linux using an application called Wine from CodeWeavers click here this program is probably installed in your Linux distro, but its limited on what you can install, if you want to start installing further applications you have to have the paid for version.
