Help Me!

Ia have problems with my New SUSE Linux...

I've installed Open SUSE 10.0, but at boot time video card is not responding...

find the vertical and horizonal frequencies for your monitor. then ctrl + alt + f2 login as root, run sax2 to reconfigure your monitor settings.

When it first shows the boot screen, there should be a line to pass options to the system. Type linux 3 there to boot into command line mode. From there, log on as root and run SaX2. You should be able to configure and test your X setup there. When you have done that, you can either reboot or type telinit 5 to get to your gui.
