Open the YaST Control Center.
Add a new Installation Source, with one of the Packman mirrors (a list 
of Mirrors you can find at 
ftp://packman.links2linux.de/pub/packman/MIRRORS, just add /suse/10.2 
to the URL you want to use)
Now you can use Packman packages like you do with Packages from your 
CD/DVD, YaST will solve all dependencies.
If you are using kaffeine, totem or xine for Playback, just search for 
it in the YaST Software installation section, klick on it to update it 
to the packman version and the rest will be installed automaticly.

Most WMV/WMA files should work with the free ffmpeg based solution which 
is included into the libxine package, but some make trouble. You can 
also install the w32codec-all package, which solves most of this 
problems. Even with this package you will not be able to play DRM 
protected files/streams. There is no known solution for playback DRM 
protected WMV/WMA files on Linux.
