Have you created a boot floppy or did you put grub on the floppy?
There are two options in Yast>System, one is a "boot floppy" the other is
"Boot Configuration", you need the latter, this will reinstall Grub just tell
it to install grub onto a floppy instead of the hard-drive, the floppy will
then act exactly like the boot sector in the mbr giving you the options you
normally see at start.
