I would'nt do it. SuSE RPMs don't follow the same file location rules as 
RedHat. E.g. they place initscripts in /sbin/init.d instead of 
/etc/rc.d /init.d or /etc/init.d. The initscripts also aren't ntsysv 

They also cripple the spec-files. SuSE distributions are'nt compatible to 
any other distribution ...
