OpenSuSE is based on SuSE Linux, which (a long time ago) was forked from Redhat (RPM based).

Corrections welcome.

Or better:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SUSE_Linux_distributions

Thus, the company was sending a set of 40 Slackware floppy disks to people who wanted to get Linux. Thereafter, the Patrick Volkerding' scripts were translated, making in 1994 the original S.u.S.E Linux 1.0 distribution a German version of Slackware, developed in close collaboration with its developer.
