    Does bootmagic give you a "load this OS..." menu when you boot? In that case tell it that the SuSE partition is bootable and that should be you, depending where you isntalled the Linux bootfiles. If you didnt install the Linux boot loader on its root or a separate boot partition you might have to reinstall it once you are up and running in SuSE. More info on that if needed.
