I checked it out and it seems there use to be an MI (Mobile Internet)
edition
http://myhpmini.com/2009/11/hp-mini-110-mi-edition-discontinued/ which
is the version that runs their modified Ubuntu variant. so the hardware
is GNU/Linux compatible. I think your problem is a SUSE issue. I think
its finally time you give up on SuSE its not the distro it once was and
as much as i hoped it would opensuse hasn't fixed that. there are no
reports of issues with GRUB reported on HP Mini 110 boxes as a matter of
fact as far as i can tell most distros work very well on it except SUSE.
see http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20090928

I know your issue with mkinitrd is a SUSE issue because i ran in to it
when i briefly tried opensuse 11.0 on my HP Pavilion Elite desktop and
its not just a HP hardware issue there were a lot of complaints about it
at the time and its not a bug its a patch to prevent users from
accidentally damaging the stock initrd image. since version 10 they
have gone to great lengths to make it easier for their individual driver
developers able to work independently, however an intended side effect
is also that it make it extremely difficult to compile your own kernel
because the stock kernel source is incomplete and they have extensively
modified mkinitrd to work only with their own tools. the reason why they
did this is an assumption that users should not compile their own
kernel's or kernel drivers.
Ruben I know you like to modify your kernel among other things but SuSE
(or SUSE as its now called) is now actively designed to prevent the
average user from doing that. also SUSE is nolonger a reliable distro
many of thier patches introduce sever bugs to the kernel and some of the
core utilities.
