The Linux Kernel is the central component of a Linux operating system like openSUSE. A Kernel manages hardware resources like CPU, memory and hard disks and provides abstractions that provide applications with a consistent view of these resources. Also, the Kernel provides drivers for devices attached to various system buses like USB, PCI, SATA and IDE. For a complete overview of Operating System Kernels see the Wikipedia article.
