openSUSE retains Grub Legacy as an option, which I use on every installation. 
YaST has yet to be updated to fully manage Grub2 configuration. In distros 
that offer only a choice between Grub2 and no bootloader I choose no 
bootloader every time. *buntu I quit even experimenting with half because of 
its Grub2 headaches. Fedora I install with no bootloader, and use Grub Legacy 
from openSUSE or Knoppix. Grub2 is buggier than stink and far more 
complicated to maintain and use than Grub Legacy on systems that don't need 
what Grub2 can do that Grub Legacy can't.
