Since you're not actually using it, but using Mandrake's installation of lilo
you might as well select to not install a boot loader at all.

For grub, it would be something like

title SUSE 9.2
kernel (hd0,9)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda10 vga=788 splash=silent
desktop resume=<your swap partition> showopts
initrd (hd0,9)/boot/initrd
