That's because there's a bug in the SuSE /sbin/mk_initrd script

Go to suse.co.uk, find the support section, search for "ext3", download the 
new script, stick it in /sbin, chmod +x it, execute it, and root will mount 
properly as ext3.

(Yes -- I experience this problem as I've only just installed SuSE 7.3, and 
had to work it out as well! :) )
