depends how you did SuSE. If you had a separate /boot partition which
you eventually share with FC, you should copy the Fedora lines and ajust
it accordingly.

If your SuSE root partition includes the /boot directory and SuSE lilo
is installed there, you may add:
title SuSE 9.1 
        rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        chainloader +1


you should make a subdirectory for each SuSE parition (e.g.
/mnt/suseroot, /mnt/suseusr and so on)

/dev/hda1      /mnt/suseroot               ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda5      /mnt/suseusr               ext3    defaults        1 2

eventually reiserfs instead of ext3
