SuSE 8 doesn't start inetd by default. to check enter as root:
rcinetd status

if it says 'OK' you should check /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf for the
right entries for swat.
if it says 'no process' or 'unused' you cd into /etc/init.d and do
'insserv inetd'. the inetd will be started at the next reboot. to start
inetd manually: rcinetd start (as root)
