From the (grub legacy, the one used in openSUSE 11.x) manual:
17 : Cannot mount selected partition
This error is returned if the partition requested exists, but
the filesystem type cannot be recognized by GRUB.

So probably your root (or boot) partition is of a type that
grub doesn't support, like ext4 or btrfs.

PS: the grub (legacy) manual is at
http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/legacy

My system has / as ext4 and /boot is not a separate partition so it is
ext4 throughout the grub directory. It has no problem with grub booting
into 12.1 or 11.4, a different partition using ext4.

I have no ext2 which is what is recommended if /boot is a separate
partition. Everything except extension and swap are ext4.

Apparently the grub manual is out of date or referring to those systems
with a separate /boot partition.

Some Linux distros changed the inode size from 128 to 256 before
changing to ext4 as a default file system. I found some GRUB would not
work with the larger inode size.

Essentially the grub itself (the one openSUSE uses) is out of date,
as it's version 0.97 (so-called grub legacy), which only has
e2fs_stage1.5 available for ext? fs'es (although that one WILL work
with ext3 too, the differences aren't important for just reading).

I'm actually not all that sure ext4 will not boot, but it IS
officially not supported by grub legacy. and may fail when the
filesystem uses features e2fs_stage1.5 doesn't understand.

I quote from the same manual:
>For any particular partition, it is presumed that only one of the
>normal filesystems such as FAT, FFS, or ext2fs can be used
(actually the list is a little bit longer, as it can boot from i.e.
reiserfs, jfs or xsf, or even CD-rom (iso9660) too).
The complete list of stage 1.5 files in MY system is:
e2fs_stage1_5
fat_stage1_5
ffs_stage1_5
iso9660_stage1_5
jfs_stage1_5
minix_stage1_5
reiserfs_stage1_5
ufs2_stage1_5
vstafs_stage1_5
xfs_stage1_5
