When updating a number of machines to SuSE 8.0, I had the same problem on one
of them. It turned out that /etc/init.d/rc3.d/S10sshd (which is a softlink
to/etc/init.d/sshd) had not been generated. After running the command
insserv sshd
everything worked fine. The link should be present in /etc/init.d/rc3.d and
in /etc/init.d/rc5.d/ .

Apart from the above, it is worth checking if "rcsshd start" successfully
starts the SSH daemon. Something like
"sshd[1219]: Server listening on :: port 22."
should appear in /var/log/messages.
