ok, change your config file to

kernel = "/boot/xen/vmlinuz-"
ramdisk = "/boot/xen/initrd-"
memory = 256
name = "brahma"
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/hda8,sda1,w' ]
vcpus = 1
vif = [ '' ]
root = "/dev/sda1 ro"
extra = "3"

and change yr /etc/fstab  of open suse to below one.  /dev/sda1 is root for opensuse domain.

/dev/sda1             /                       ext3  defaults  1 1
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0

Just try it.  i think it would be just fine.

one good document to follow.

Are there any special steps I need to follow to boot openSUSE as domU?

I found this link for instance --
"http://www.suse.de/~kraxel/xen/suse-guest.html " -- and it talks about
using a bootloader for loading openSUSE. Didn't make much sense to me,
but I thought I'd point it out just in case ...
