Welcome to openSUSE and the best place to find support for it. The US Robotics you have should work fine. But if you need to buy another one stay away from the win-modems as they won't work. There is a program called seyon that you can use to talk to the modem to see if it is working. Use the Program Manager part of YaST to install it. It has been too long since I needed a modem to help much more.

Good luck.

Oh, and please only reply to the list.
