Why won't grub work, are there errors? As far as I know you should be able to install lilo to boot a Suse distro. I have not paid attention lately but I think suse used to give you an option on the installation to choose lilo. I may have to back up on that, If you use an ext4 file system I am not sure if lilo will read.
I personally use grub2 on everyone of the distros I boot.
