Good, strange thing is it looks like a normal folder (boot) but if you use the 
SuSE live CD its a link! 

OK at least I know thats a red herring now. the problem must be MBR.

I reckon I need to disconnect all the drives except /dev/hda (XP) then do 
FIXMBR then boot if that works at least I know the MBR is not stuffed. then 
reconnect /dev/hdc (SuSE) run the repair disk which supposedly puts/fixes 

If that fails I'll use the /sbin/grub-install /dev/hda command.

Hey that was lots of help, could have done with it last night after Dicks post 
but better late than never ;)
