Looking very briefly at ZM, it is just a web app that uses PHP and MySQL 
much like MythTV. So you need to set your router to forward port 80 to 
your SuSE box and make sure that your apache config (on Fedora, they 
reside in /etc/httpd/) allows you to serve external IP addresses.

I assume you have some dynamic DNS setup to be able to resolve your home 
IP address...
