Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It sounds like there is a problem with the loading of the X Server, and your display drivers. I have had a similiar issue before.
What kind of video card are you using? Are the drivers up-to-date? Have you enabled 3D acceleration, or Are you using the Mesa drivers that come with SuSE?
Are you able to start the X server from the FAILSAFE mode?
What does your /etx/X11/xorg.conf look like? I need to know your laptop's specs too.
Yes, It seems X Server Causes the problem, My display Driver seems ok expept one thing, In SAX2 , It shows ATI Drivers but with different series, It means, My Display driver in notebook is " ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 IGP " and SAX2 Shows, " ATI 3550 ".
Drivers are which are installed by OpenSuSE 10 by default.
I checked , 3D is avtivated or Enabled.
So far as concern to the Monitor, In monitors list, i got my " zv5000 " under " HP " .
I got appropriate Resolution ( 1200 x 800 with 24 BIT colors ) It is wider screen.
Last, VERY SURPRISINGLY, In safe mode, for the first time it takes me to Run level 3 (Command Mode) but then give " init 5 " command it entered into Graphical Mode without any hitch.
In failsafe mode, a lot of hardware-related settings are restricted or switched off completely. Have a look at /boot/grub/menu.lst for a list of used boot options. I suggest to test them one by one with the standard (1st) boot entry, starting with acpi=off.
These options may either be modified in menu.lst directly, or passed to the kernel temporarily by pressing F3 on the boot screen and typing the parameter in the appearing field.
I don't think it's the X server that causes the problem, as this should not affect the early boot process. It may be the framebuffer driver (console graphics), but the fact that it doesn't boot at all makes this unlikely as well.
