I remembered that I had the suse's 8.1 CDs here

and voila. I still got the errors from dpkg but it didn't stop, it
continued the installation process so I reinstalled all problematic
packages and now everything is back to normal!!!
But I wonder now, may there be some problems "left behind", non-apparent
for the moment that could surface latter on ? Is it recommended that I
start all over again so as to make sure ?
I wouldn't think so. If problems do arise, you can deal with them then.
It may be just as difficult a problem as this one was, but you _were_
able to fix this one without rebuilding, and you _can_ fix the next one
without rebuilding. That's the nature of *nix.
If your box seems to be running normally now, I'd think it's fine. But
it's up to you if you want to rebuild "just to be sure". When coming
from the Windows world, that's a normal reaction/thought process.
