I'm sorry, I didn't write everything. I sent a mail to testing list,
when I ran into the problem, I quote this
"I installed beta2, but the boot loader install wasn't succeed. I'd like
to install the boot loader to the boot record of the root filesystem (sda2).
It didn't show any error, but when I tried to reboot the system the
following error message displayed:
Filesystem type is ext2fs partition type 0x83
error 2: bad file or directory type
When I booted to repair system on the install dvd and tried to reinstall
the boot loader, the installer complained that /dev/sda2 didn't exist.
It exists, can be mounted and contains /boot/grub/menu.lst. The
installation of LILO also failed.
I can't install grub from 10.3 neither:
setup --prefix=/mnt/hda2/boot/grub (hd0,1)
~ Checking if "/mnt/hda2/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no
Error 2: Bad file or directory type
The stage1 file is there.
So, I can not boot to my freshly installed system."
So the problem as far as I can see is that grub shipped with openSUSE 11
(and 10.3) can not be installed to a partition what formatted with 256
I think the problem wasn't caused by my previously installed grub.
I have this in menu.lst

The Grub Error in 10.3 can be caused by the HDD Designation.
Since 10.3 there should be no /dev/hda anymore - even an IDE Drive should be
recognized as /dev/sda
So maybe that is the Problem for 10.3.
