Installed FC3 on hard drive that contained SuSE 9.0, now it won't boot


I've been running a server that had SuSE 9.0 installed for about a year, but of late I've been becoming frustrated with the limitations SuSE places on the user. I decided to switch to FC3, and I managed to install it without trouble on another partition (I resized the partition that SuSE was installed on and kept it around, in case I need data on it). However, now I want to boot into my SuSE system and I'm having trouble. I can't access the grub.conf file on the SuSE partition because of an error that says I am not allowed to access it, so I'm can't figure out how what I should put in the grub.conf file on my FC3 partition. I've tried a few things, but I always get the error: file systems are invalid (or something akin to it.) I used ReiserFS for my SuSE partition and ext3 for my FC3 partition. Does anyone know how I might be able to boot into SuSE?

reiser fs

I just installed FC3 on a laptop, and I don't recall Reiser being a option for a file system.

If that is a correct, FC3 will not see the SuSE file system.

You may need to use something like Damm Small Linux or Knoppix live CD to get your SuSE files.

FC3 is able to access a partition formatted with Resiser, and directorys that are not protected I can view fine, as well as see the files inside. Even in knoppix, however, I cannot see the protected files on my SuSE partition.
