Sync out of range and other worries


Hello,
I am very, very new to linux. I have been trying to install Suse 9.2 for some time now. All goes well, but when I tried to install drivers for radeon 9800SE (from ati's site) the X stopped working. I downloaded the ati-drivers-etc.run and used the following commands:
su
init 3
./ati-drivers-etc.run
After that, I got only got error messages when trying to startx. Sorry I didn't write them down.

Being the windows user that I am, I just re-installed Suse. After the initial update process when I try to boot it for the first time, my monitor told me "sync out of range". I have syncmaster 957p. I can't imagine why this happened after the second install, but not the first.

Can someone please help me?

How? I tried it by booting with Knoppix and trying to edit the file with vi, but even if I try to save it with :w!, I get an error message telling me that the file can not be written. I can not boot Suse, because the monitor doesn't work even without x.

When you boot into Knoppix, you need to unmount the drive (if Knoppix automatically mounted it as read-only), and remount it so you'll have write access.
