You have an install of SuSe 9.1 and added a new monitor since the initial install?
You are able to boot into SuSe and get your KDE screen right off, or do you get a text screen at boot? If this is the case, you need to change the monitor frequencies for the X windows system to match the new monitor, as X is using the old settings from the old monitor.
When you boot into Windows, everything is still fine?

On install, you need to tell SuSe to install at 1024 X 768. There is a tab to F3 or something on the bottom of the initial install window to do this.
In terms of you existing installation, if you have KDE up, then you need to go into the Control Panel and set up the new monitor. I will look at this later. I bet your monitor is not shown there, so you may need to have the correct settings from the users manual. It should be generic (vesa) LCD. Look at the manual and get the correct horizontal and vertical sync ranges. It should be something like;
Horizontal = 30-83
Vertical = 56-75
You need to run it at probably;
1280 X 1024 @ 60 hz or;
1024 X 768 @ 75 hz
But use your monitor specific ranges.
You really need to do this to assure that the ranges are corect, or risk possible damage to the monitor.

Normal means the standard VGA input, which 720 * 400 @ 70 is.More Information find man in svga.txt.
