You are probably correct -- SUSE 9 (and 10.0) have a "php4" package
that doesn't include session support.
If you can get your system administrator to install the "php4-session"
package, then things should start working.
This is the second time this week that someone has run into this
problem, so perhaps I'll add some checking for session support into
the base code, so it at least provides an error message of some sort.
