Win XP w/ SuSE 10.1 dual boot

Hi I'm a newbie to this, so I hope you all will forgive me. I just purchased a magazine that had SuSE 10.1 in it and took it home to install on my laptop. I have a Toshiba Satellite with the Celeron M processor and the ATI Radeon XPress 200M onboard graphics. Anyways, I just popped in the discs and let SuSE set up my hard drive for the dual boot. The installation went through just fine and the GRUB screen loads no problem. My problem occurs when I get to the point that SuSE loads. I can hear the music tone when it loads just fine, but the screen is all green and fuzzy. I can't see anything when it's in this state. Any ideas you all could offer would be great.

Sounds like the configuration file for Xorg needs adjusting. Not that good with SuSE but you can probably use the disc to boot into some kind of rescue mode and edit it from there. Thats one solution anyway.

Also, try Ctrl-Alt - (minus) to lower the resolution perhaps.
