If the installer offers you the option of using logical, choose that - for as many as you want. The extended will be created automagically to accommodate.
BTW, there is no (Linux) requirement for the boot partition to be a primary. This is poor design of the (presumably OpenSuse) installer - raise a bug report against it.
actually the requirement for boot to be primary wasnt given by openSUSE ... it was an article i read when i searched for linux partitions on google ...
so ill jus make all da partitions logical .... nd keep me fingers crossed that ACPI error dont crop up again .. it gv me a hell of a time .. took 2 weeks to get ubuntu installed ...first to detect da error then overriding it ... but now cant boot ubuntu .
guess openSUSE wont hv any such problems ..
