I can't answer for OpenSuSE but with RHEL you'll get a kickstart file in root's home directory by default based on the original installation. Reverse engineering from some random current machine state to a kickstart is not a trivial exercise and therefore is unlikely to be programmable/scriptable unless you only need to configure a few basic items.
