You've to tell the client that it should use the server, by typing something 
like this:

# X <some options> -query <name or ip of the server>

On the server side you must look up an Xaccess file (don't know where it is 
on SuSE systems) and either allow everyone to get a loginwindow, by putting
a "*" in there or simply specify the laptop name.
Also there's (on debian and redhat) a line to comment out in the xdm-config.
There's a comment about the access stuff in this file.
A restart of xdm/gdm/kdm/whatever is needed.

Hope it helps,
