You basically need to follow these instructions to create a new boot disk :

I have tried, but the kernel source code that SuSE ships never seems to 
compile for me, or if it does its for a single processor kernel, or the 
kernel ID is different from the one that gets installed, so the module 
doesn't match, etc. etc.

Perhaps we could email SuSE and get them to create a new set of boot 
disks for SuSE 7.2/7.3/8.0.

I don't mind hosting them on my servers, and making some instructions on 
how to use them.

If anyone is interested, or anyone knows friendly engineers at SuSE who 
might help out with this, email me back and I can start to arrange this.
