Thanks to the advice I received in this forum, I have succesfully

them to directories on the NAS.

I then used MySQL Workbench to tell MySQL to put all it's data on the
NAS, and when I check my.cnf, that worked as expected. However, from
that point onward, MySQL has refused to start. What I get is an error
message saying only that it failed to start, but nothing to indicate
why or how to fix it.

Then you need to look for some diagnostics.
Start with: /var/log/messages, /var/log/mysqld/.

who know well how to administer MySQL on Suse 12.3 and who can tell me
a) how to fix this

We need to know what "this" is :-) "mysql doesn't start" simply isn't

Mount your filesystem <somewhere>, then change my.cnf:[mysqld]:datadir
