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.

I don't know how specifically in SuSE 9.0, but in any version you should be able to type "init 3", which should dump you back to textmode.
YAST has probably changed a bit since SuSE 8.0 (the last one I ran), but look for the "runlevel" value under SysConfig editor from within YAST. The default for graphical X boot is "5". Normal text mode is "3"
Cool. Thanks. got the driver installed now I'm trying to find XFree86. I found 4 versions but none of them looked right. I'm used to mandrake where all I have to do is edit XF86Config-4. Anybody know where this file is I'm supposed to edit?
another way to get out of X is simply to hit Cntrl+alt+bkspc /etc/X11/Xf86config is where ive found that file on every distro ive worked on recently (uhhh really just slack evilentity and gentoo havent been playing around much lately...too afraid of missing portage)
