Why? you can build your own Kernel in every distribution, and it is not more 
risky as using the precompiled ones.
You can use a standard kernel over the SuSe Kernel (which is essencially a 
std Kernel with Reiserfs and ISDN patchs already applied).

The Kernel is not realy dependant on the rest of the system.
