Assuming you understand how /boot/grub/menu.lst works, just copy any or all
of the ones the installation CD uses from e.g. here
http://mirrors.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source/boot/i386/loader/isolinux.cfg
and adjust as necessary according to where you actually put linux and
initrd. If your motherboard doesn't require any special parameters, the 1st
should be plenty, and even if it isn't, you can modify on the fly with grub
anyway.
