it works fine. This appears to be default behaviour out of the box
that openSUSE cannot resolve LAN hostnames.

Of course openSUSE can use a DNS resolver. It is such a basic
necessity, everything would stop if it didn't work.

It can't resolve things it doesn't know about. If you can browse for
the server, but not get to it directly with a host name then this is
definitely the issue. You need to have some means of mapping host
name to IP address. Your choices are DNS server, hosts file, lmhosts
file or WINS server.

Not sure about the last two, but otherwise yup.
