Tony Baechler here.

Thanks for the Fenrir link. I'll go get it. I've looked at the SBL source, 
or what I could find of it. No, it doesn't need a kernel module. The problem 
is it's tied into Knoppix, so I think would be difficult to package. It's 
mostly bash scripts which I guess are a talking menu system. I didn't see a 
way to actually compile an executable, but I'm sure I wasn't finding the 
full sources even though I looked. It is or was somewhere on I 
think it hasn't been maintained for a long time. If I recall correctly, the 
source was several years old. If it's in opensuse as you say, you should be 
able to get and extract the RPM package. If you find it and get it working, 
I would be interested.
