A. Sorry, but right now you can't do this. ZAV is "by Windows, for Windows". This means, in its current state, you can only virtualize Windows applications to run on Windows machines. You cannot virtualize applications from any other platform--Linux (which would include SUSE), Mac/Apple, Unix, and so forth. You also cannot virtualize a Windows application to run on another platform (meaning a virtual Windows application will not run on Linux, Mac, etc...).
