Qt in SuSE 9.3 is corrupted. If you must use accents, you will have to 
recompile Qt. I should know: it was I that filed the bug report to KDE. 
It is far easier to download OpenSuSE 10 from 
http://www.opensuse.org/Download. If instead of doing a clean install you do 
an "upgrade system", you will be able to keep all your existing personal 
files (back them up anyway).
On SuSE 10, my Lyx documents are written both in French ans Spanish, with all 
due accents.
