Theoretically yes, but I guess a lot of things won't work anymore if you copy your database. For example, SUSE uses a different document root thant Ubuntu (/srv/www instead of /var/www).

Personally, I'd advice against using SUSE. ISPConfig is developed on Debian/Ubuntu, so it will work best on these distributions.
