try to install in safe mode
Then you might start acpi or apm ++ after you have installed, This really screwed up a laptop I tried to install on untill I treid a safe install, or atleast with acpi disabled (the laptop works fine with acpi enabled after install)
If this does not work, then I guess you downloaded (Oh yeah, you downloaded it) it and got incomplete iso's. If you have or had some md5 numbers you could check the isos in k3b or an md5 checking program of sorts. There may be two reasons why you downloaded this suse, you either didn't have the cash for the retail version and wanted to read up on your Suse before you bought the next version, Or you are a windows user who have gotten your moral destroyed by the widespread pirating coulture. Either way, the 5 disc download is not the way to go, it is incomplete in comparrison to the dvd and ftp (belive me I know) So the best thing is to either buy the package (if you dont want the manual ot you are a student, you might get away with the student or upgrade packages.) Or wait until mid-January for the ftp version.
One last thing is, make a /home partition. This way you won't loose all your personal files or favorite wallpaper each time you try to install a new distro. You can also inastall several distros and share the /home partition. It took me a while before I discovered the true value of /home.
