Yesterday install Suse 10.1 in my Inspiron 6000 series laptop. Automatically detect my Graphic Card, WiFi, Sound Card. Though it detect Wi-Fi card automatically, but have to install the following packages to make it work:
Execute modrobe ipw3945 to add the ipw to module. After that KNetworkMananger can search the Wireless Network.

After having so much trouble, I was able to play mp3 in amaroK. Not yet tested my DVD burner. Looking for the right software like hyperterminal in windows.
