He there, I have had the same prob. with my fluxbox. I got that fixed. But I dont remember how. I will find out how I did it and post a nother reply. Sorry for not being helpfull now.
You can exit X by pressing cntr-alt-F[x] with x a number between 1 and 6. You will get command line prompt where you can log in. Then do what the other guy's have told you

Hello there.
Edit the file "/opt/kde/share/config/kdm/kdmrc". You will see a line like
"SessionTypes=kde,windowmaker,fvwm2,mwm,twm,fluxbox,failsafe". Put a blackbox entry in there and you are done.
I assume you have KDM as your login manager. I also have suse 7.3 and I have KDM so unless you changed somthing you sould have that as well.
Bey .

Oh, one more thing, you might not have a /opt/kde directory but a /opt/kde2 directory
