Can't tell you. You could try google and the SuSE forums / lists. I even
don't know which partition tool the SuSE installer uses in which case.

Yes, well known. If you review the list archive you will find many
reports of failed media checks. Many have though succeeded after booting
into install with parameter "ide=nodma".

You checked bugzilla.redhat.com?

I suggest you boot FC4's CD1 or the DVD into rescue mode and then run
fdsik to erase all existing partitions (I did understand you that no
data has to left over from the SuSE install). Reboot into install with
now having a completely empty hard disk partition table.
