Progress, sort of.  I've told Suse to put grub on the / disk at c0d0p0.  I now 
get a grub prompt, but the system hangs immediately after starting tty 
logging.   I still haven't found the "right" place for everything.  BTW, if 
there is a HOWTO on this, I'd appreciate a link.  I've GTFI for a long time 
today, but all the configs I've seen differ in some major way from mine.
