Can't speak for suse, but typically you just press enter to boot the kernel and start the install program. Seems to me suse would use the gui by default...

What version did you install? Personal or pro?
Tipically, suse boots to a graphical environment. If you installed everything correctly, you should boot to kde, by default.
Can you see a prompt in the end of the boot process?

i don't changed any function in instaling. but then file copying was finished, i saw :
"these packets returns erorr:"
and there were about 10 packets. and that's all.
then my pc reboots i saw:
linux
windwos
safe
etc
i selected linux. then i saw suse logo and green window with comand line.

Did you check the md5sum of these iso files you downloaded? They are meant to be a test for the integrity of the files in the install media.
