It affects only certain hardware: hard drive (heads, cylinder, specifics)
I'm not sure what hardware specifications are the problem, but will post when I find out.
New bios is set to Auto. Usually there is a seperate entry for direct LBA. I suppose Auto and LBA should be the same thing: don't know.

i have a few ideas

Hello i have a few ideas

1>Does Suse providing kernel 2.4 with Suse 9.1?
if yes, then choose kernel 2.4 in installation (kernel 2.4 is not prone to this bug,), after finishing installation, upon reboot we can manually install kernel 2.6 and remove kernel 2.4.

2> Why don't install Suse in fat32 partition?
keep, or arrange an empty fat32 partition,
upon installation of Suse 9.1, in file system type select fat32, then select any of your empty fat32 partition. AFAIK Suse no need to change\create\format Partition, so it won't touch your Geometry.

3> Why don't use PC virtualization software until this bug fully fixed?
it may hard to setup when using open source PC virtualization software softwares, but it is dam-safe to use linux operating system you want,

PC virtualization software links (Open source)

PC virtualization software (Commercial)

please give your feedbacks

1 - I don't think SuSE provides that choice

2 - Not possible. Linux requires functionality that FAT32 does not provide. FAT32 does not have permissions for example. It does not support sybolic linking either, I believe.
