The problem is likely caused by a erroneous lilo installation. After
updating the packages you should have startet Yast and select the
kernel to boot. After that, LILO would have been run automatically which
was neccessary, because LILO cannot go on with a new kernel without
beeing run again.

So, if you can get into your system, you might just type (as root)

yast --mask kernel --autoexit

which brings you to the kernel-menue automatically. Select the kernel
to boot. Afterwards Yast will ask you if it should run LILO. Answer
yes, and the problem should be gone...

In general, the "ran out of input data" often disappears by just
running lilo.
