I’ve written an install guide for OpenSuse 11.3 and CUDA SDK 3.1 / 3.2. (Of course many of the steps are applicable for other distros as well.)
The guide can be found at: http://timelordz.com/wiki/index.php/Nvidia_CUDA
There is also a Suse specific forum thread on it here: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/information-new-users/unreviewed-how-faq/443894-nvidia-cuda-opensuse-11-3-a.html
On thing in particular I noticed was that the CUDA SDK 3.2 release notes do not include the same mention of the missing symlinks as do the 3.1 release notes. Follow the procedure in the 3.1 notes, which is also described in the guide.
(Please note that this is a personal Wiki and as such is not open to public edits, but if you post corrections I will try to incorporate them.)
I hope this guide helps people get started with CUDA. Have Fun!
