Peripherals & Suse 10.1

Question
What would happen to the printers, USB ports, video and sound card, and most importantly the Ethernet card when installing SUSE 10.1 version of Linux?

Answer
mostly they will all work.. but of course u have to specify the exact hardware u got so that we give u an accurate answer :)
as for the important ethernet i have installed many linux distros on many computers with different hardwares and in all cases the ethernet worked perfectly except for one time with ubuntu 6.06 but i found the right module (driver) quickly and easily

so my friend dont be afraid and give it a shot...
