you should be able to mount the partition of interest

eg, assuming root partition was on /dev/hda..

mount /dev/hda /mnt (assuming default ext2 fs)

cd /mnt

root filesystem as was should be there

move the
files of interest on the main drive elsewhere and then re-install SuSE.
can't seem to determine how to mount the filesystems of the old system
undo what I did. Any ideas here?
