Question SuSE install on a Packard Bell m415

hi everybody,
I just installed Suse on an old Packard Bell.
When the install was at detecting my moden, it hung. I couldn't free it sooooo, I pressed ctrl+alt+backspace.

Yup that killed the process alright.
The machine went right down and upon reboot it is now at the KDE welcome page.

Here is my problem, for anybody that hasn't guessed. The NIC and other perifferals weren't configured.

Q: How do I get back to thet GUI config page?

Thank you in advance

found it.

From KDE I went to the K gear in the lower left corner and seclected SuSE and then Administration and Configuration. I will sure be glad when I have a handle on the file system so I can do command line entries.
