It's not 2.6.8, it's 2.6.8+a ton of patches. You can see for yourself
in /pub/projects/kernel on teh ftp site, which is where the suse kernel
foments. Among other things, you can burn CDs as non-root, which is one of
the main problems people have with 2.6.8 (well, it's the main problem I had
with it)

BTW, what exactly is a standard kernel, if 2.6.8 is a "non-standard" one?
