got it to install (basic system), in case anybody else wonders. started rescue
system, mounted filesystems, copied vmlinuz from /boot
into /boot/efi/efi/SuSE (I think, were elilo.conf resides, anyway) and
"cleaned up" the elilo.conf a bit so that I don't get any error messages

Still have unsatisfied dependencies, in particular for KDE etc but will look
into that later.

Still, any experience, hints and tips welcome!
