    And copy/paste the results you get back here so the situation can be assessed.

    Yes. You can install grub to the MBR. In the grub control file (/boot/grub/menu.lst) in sda6 you would have a stanza which "chainloads" to the Windows boot loader in sda2. openSUSE will probably propose this setup.
