I may be wrong, but I can't see how it would be possible. When you boot your computer, it will be controlled by either one OS or the other. I don't believe it is possible to run both operating systems on the same machine simultaneously. In my view running a Suse server on a different box and having it act as a firewall would be a more practical solution.
If I'm completely wrong about this, I would love to hear anyone explain how it could be done the way you are asking though.. smile
