pksd has numerous bugs. I advise against using it. SKS is a good keyserver 
under active development, and it can synchronize with pksd.

If you decide to use pksd, be sure to download the newest version from the 
sourceforge project.

pgp-keyserver-folk at is a list that you may be interested in.

WinPT itself does not send and receive keys - it just remote-controls 
gnupg. In any case, both pksd and sks are written to operate with gnupg, 
so there should be no problem.

SKS is written in ocaml, I don't know how much ocaml support there is in 
SuSE. But you should be able to download and install ocaml without 
problems (Or you may switch to Debian, which is better anyway :-) and 
supports ocaml out of the box).

pksd should have no problem.
