54 bit? u mean 64 bit. Also, make sure your hard drive is set as master on the right controller on your motherboard. I don't know anything about Suse, but I had a similar problem when I had my HD on my secondary controller. The system would read it as some other drive hdc or something like that.

Just try moving the IDE cable from your secondary controller on your board to your master. It may already be there, but just swap it up to see what happens.
