[opensuse] Headless server

I'm trying to recycle an old machine as a headless server alongside my main
desktop machine. The two machines will be linked through my ADSL router. I
have done a standard openSUSE + KDE4.1 install on it, but now need to get it
able to run in headless mode.

I have set the BIOS to 'Halt on none', so hopefully it will boot without
mouse, keyboard or monitor.

I now need to set it to boot into runlevel 3, as there is no need for a GUI,
but I am not sure which file(s) need editing.

My user was set to 'Automatic login' at installation.

Hopefully, I will then be able to ssh into my user, having put my
key into ~/.ssh and into ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

I'd be very grateful for any advice or a pointer to a How-To document.
