Well i really hope you didn't installed RHLE on the same partition as Suse, if it is then i'm afraid your Suse is lost.
You can check if the Suse partition is still in place by running 'cfdisk' it's a text based front-end to fdisk, very easy to use.

If everything is ok then i can explain how to fix the problem if you use the LILO boot manager. (I never used GRUB so i really don't know)

Anyhow as for LILO:
you open /etc/lilo.conf and look at it for 5 minutes
After you realize it's a damn pretty file, you simply add the Suse partition to the list of possible partitions to boot.

It really is an easy Copy-Paste job.

After you saved the file you have to run the 'lilo' command in order for the changes to take effect.

This is it!
