I used to have a problem where neither my Linux nor Windows partitions would
boot consistently, i.e. it would  boot successfully sometimes and not so on
other occasions. This was traced to a memory problem - my RAM chips had gone
bad apparently. While Suse seems to working for you, you might nonetheless
want to run a memory check.

Installing FC8 should not solve the problem, in my opinion. And I would be
surprised if Suse has something to do with this.
