Trouble installing Suse 9.1...


i went and downloaded the free Suse 9.1 personal ISO(i dont get why they give it away, and have a boxed version for $$, but anyway...), and burned it on a CD, and booted it up. the suse splash screen comes up, and then i am given several different installation options. i selected the standard "installation" option. i see a "loading kernel" bar, adn then a large amount of text scrools through the screen, ending with ">>> Suse linux install program, copy right blah blah blah<<<" and then a blinking "dos-ish" cursor. and it sits there doing nothing(the cd also stops spinning). so i thought, "hey, maybe its done installng, so i boot up my HD, but all i see is another blinking cursor. am i not installing it right? or is 9.1 unstable?

At the cursor type "startx" without the quotes, what happens?
