become root, then do a:

init 1

or maybe a:

telinit 1


you can also edit your /etc/inittab file and reboot...

did you forget your root password or something??

if so, boot a live rescue cd, mount the suse root partition, edit the /etc/inittab file on it, and then reboot into it...

if you don't have the ability to boot a cd-rom, then you'll need to pass a parameter to your bootloader... your bootloader must be set to "prompt" you for that to be possible...
