Which exact manual and version are you referring to?

SuSE 10.3 KDE / K Menu / KDE Help Center / openSUSE Documentation
Reference - III System - 12.1 The Linux Boot Process

I use GNome, and the "khelpcenter" (version 3.93.00) shows a blank, complains of no index, asks: build one? fails ans hangs, asks again.

You mean this:

/usr/share/doc/manual/opensuse-manual_en/manual/cha.boot.html#sec.boot.proc

Boot Loader. The first physical 512-byte data sector of the first hard
disk is loaded into the main memory and the boot loader that resides at
the beginning of this sector takes over. The commands executed by the
boot loader determine the remaining part of the boot process. Therefore,
the first 512 bytes on the first hard disk are referred to as the Master
Boot Record (MBR). The boot loader then passes control to the actual
operating system, in this case, the Linux kernel. More information about
GRUB, the Linux boot loader, can be found in Chapter 13, The Boot
Loader.


Well... while this is true, it is confusing if it leads you to think that the MBR is only the one from the first disk.
