I guess you mean using /etc/sysconfig/network/routes? I'm not sure if you
can provide any options there.

Another way would be to create your own script which sets up additional
routing. Use /etc/init.d/skeleton as a template and create a script (e.g.
called /etc/init.d/routes) which contains the commands for setting the
routes. Then make sure the symbolic links for starting and stopping the
script are created in the runlevel directories:

insserv /etc/init.d/routes

The script has to be started after the network script, so the names of the
symbolic links should start with S06 or higher numbers (the links for the
network script are called S05network). For more information, have a look
at the man page of init.d (man init.d) which describes the SUSE boot
concept. If you have any problems, feel free to contact me off-list (as
this is not a Squid-related topic).
