Thank you for your answers:
Please search for the "COMMAND MODE" section in that man page for more information about switching between extended table views.
I guess this is the part of the fdisk manpage you mean:
select #
Select and load into memory the boot block pointed to by the ex-
tended MBR partition table entry in the current boot block.
but to tell the truth it looks quite cryptic to me

So, from what you are telling me, I should be able to dump OpenBSD somewhere, and then cancel its partition and turn it into an extended partition which I could split again into a partition for OpenBSD and one for my ext2 partition, or even from there create another extended partition where I could install Opensuse.
Did I get it right?
