However, the chances are that given the person involved appears to have
little linux experience, they are unlikely to have a setup requiring an
initrd (ReiserFS/NFS/SCSI root). OK, they might have SCSI disks, but

Doh!

Looks like I just lost that one...

Yes, you need to run

mk_initrd

followed by

lilo

Which should return something like

added linux*
added suse
added memtest86

Better go home and go to bed...
