Dear Vikas,

If possible can you post output of "sudo fdisk -l" command ?
And please post the contents of /boot/grub/menu.lst file from suse linux
and Sabayon linux ?

You can mount suse linux's partitions from Sabayon linux, so
that you can immediately access your important data and
suse's menu.lst file.

Also just a suggestion, if you want to see a new linux distribution
you can use qemu + kvm from suse itself, which will provide almost
native performance. And no need to worry about partitioning your HDD
and worrying about multiple boot loaders, etc.
