Thanks to everyone for responding. I'll try your suggestions and should
have a CD in the next week or so.

Parenthetically,

when I enter uname -a:
Linux linux-f47p 2.6.32.45-0.3-pae #1 SMP 2011-08-22 10:12:58 +0200
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

when enter zypper if kernel-pae:
it tries to refresh service 'nu_novell.com', but says there's a problem
retrieving the repository index file.
Errors listed: Connection failed, check if URL is valid, couldn't
resove host 'www2.ati.com

upon attempting to disable the firewall via command chkconfig
SuSEfirewall2 off:
SuSEfirewall2: unknown service

I'll keep you informed of my results after I try the CD boot.
