Tom, Dave, hope I am not interrupting your flow, if I may suggest couple 
of things which may or may not work......

o When at ubuntu, type at terminal
sudo grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
If it doesn't help, at least it will do no harm.

o at terminal, type "sudo grub-emu"
then when grub emulation appears, do
grub> ls (hd5,1)

Suse is at sdf1, right?

Since this is actually at ubuntu and not really at grub, it may list out 
the output of the suse partition. If there is some output, Dave, please 
write out this output.
Then we'll try to boot with this information.

To quit grub-emu, type 'exit'. Then at terminal type 'reset' to clear mess.
