I don't understand ... did you use your user password and username? I'm not exactly sure about SUSE, but I know Ubuntu is like that ... it won't even allow you to login as root to the desktop, and it's not safe anyways.
Otherwise, maybe a password problem? Why not log in as root, and change the password using passwd?
I take it you can't login using your username and user password?
