Perceus is pretty distro independent, but does favor RPM based  
distros.  I haven't played with SuSE much but if you're interested  
consider doing a test deployment of perceus using Caos so it's already  
integrated and simple.  If you like the methods/functionality of  
Perceus then proceed to building and deploying it from a SuSE node.
