Cannot help with specific SuSE experience, however here is some info
that may help you if you don't find a 4 command solution.
Modern initrd.img files are a gzip_ed concatenation of cpio_s.
So you may be able to repair the current not quite complete initrd
with a sequence like:
# gzip -dc initrd.img > /tmp/initrd.img.full
# mkdir /tmp/initrd
# cd /tmp/initrd
# cpio -idv < ../initrd.img.full
Add missing modules, edit the init shell script to load them, add debugging ....
# find * -print | cpio -oc | gzip -9 > ../initrd.img
I've found playing around in there useful more than a few times.
