And don't confuse Linux for BSD or me for an idiot, I know the difference between su and sudo and I use both. it asked me for ROOT'S password.
JUST typed this again:

Oh yeah, forgot to mention Suse also has a weird /etc/sudoers file that uses the "rootpw" by default instead of "targetpw". If you change it to "targetpw" you might want to change %users ALL=(ALL) ALL to root ALL=(ALL) ALL as well.
