Default apt-get in suse: Couldn't find package

hi...
i'm kinda new to this, having recently removed windows from my system and giving the disks away and going with linux fulltime...anyways i used apt-get in ubuntu, which i really liked but it's a little too advanced for me at this stage, and when i found this page I was really happy.

i'm running SuSE 9.3 and when i go to install something, for example skype, using apt-get i get the following message:

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package skype


i've been looking for something that would explain what i'm doing wrong or what i'm not doing but it a blizzard out there and i'm lost.

is it that it can't find skype on the server? i've done apt-cache search skype and it's listed.

could someone please help me?

i'm sorry if this isn't the place to post comments like this....as i've said i'm new to this....
