Are you sure you are working with ISOlinux bootloader. Grub for
example can also boot CDROMs. Please see
http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/html_node/Making-a-GRUB-bootable-CD_002dROM.html
for more information.
Without access to opensuse i can only guess. Maybe you could recieve
more pointed help in a more opensuse centric list ??
