Looks like Peter Boy has what you need for fstab except for adding

/dev/hda6      /mnt/susehome	ext3    defaults        1 2

Well, actually I'd do it like this (different strokes):

/dev/hda1      /suse		ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda5      /suse/usr	ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda6      /suse/home	ext3    defaults        1 2

Try adding this stanza to /boot/grub/grub.conf (/etc/grub.conf is a soft
link):

title SUSE
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-<version> ro root=/dev/hda1
        initrd /initrd-<version>.img
