A question: can grub boot into uefi setups which are now, or about to be,
all the rage?

It can't handle any UEFI system I've got. I have to use Grub2.

I suspected as much.

I should clarify that if I switch off UEFI (there is a legacy option
thing in the UEFI/BIOS) then UEFI seems to take a backseat, and Grub1
will work fine. It gets a bit weird with UEFI turned on, and the UEFI
is aware of openSUSE when it's installed - it's even listed as a
bootable OS when you poke around in the UEFI/BIOS after installing
openSUSE. Grub1 didn't want to play nice, but I never spent any time
at all to discover why because Grub2 was a fire-and-forget. Grub2 and
the openSUSE install seemed to have no issue at all with a multiboot
configuration (I did not install other OSes post openSUSE install, but
others were on the drives prior to installing).

openSUSE 12.2 x86_64, KDE 4.10
