You can install Fedora Core 3 in the free partition and be sure to install FC3's grub on Fedora's /boot partition, not on the MBR. Then, from SuSE edit /boot/grub/menu.lst (or /boot/grub/grub.conf) and /boot/grub/ to boot Fedora. the values you have to add to these 2 files are in Fedora's /boot partition, accesible form SuSE. Another option would be to install xosl but in this case you would have to reinstall SuSE's grub on SuSE's boot partition or / partition, depending on SuSE's configuration.
