OK, a lot of this is not quite what you're looking for - but here goes anyway.
Years ago I was able to quad boot Linux, BeOS, Windows 98 and one other OS. It was difficult, but once up and running it worked just fine. You've just got to figure out how to do it and what order to do it in.
Now, I don't have any 64 bit capable systems, so I can't be 100% sure, but the 32 bit Vista installs flawlessly into a dual boot with Windows XP Home and Pro. I'd expect the same to be true about the 64 bit.
With SuSE installed it may be a bit more complicated (I don't know how SuSE will react to a new OS - but all you've got to lose is some time! 20 gB is a minimum that you'll need - remember you'll be having to try out all sorts of software on it!
Now, to add to the problem, there's 32 bit drivers and 64 bit drivers - so that may be an issue for you. Vista Beta 2 (32 bit) handled all of my devices just fine - but I only use major brand hardware components in my systems.
Finally, if it doesn't work with the SuSE, I'd suggest deleting SuSE along with the Vista. Once only XP is left, format and partition your drives for how you'd like them setup in the end. Then install Vista, then install SuSE. This should ensure that SuSE recognizes both of the installations.
