Booting from GRUB Error 8

Ok so I've given up on my dual boot aspirations for now and want to just run linux. Installed Suse 9.2 professional on my computer and after the initial installation where it reboots it dropped me into the GRUB screen. I pressed tab to see a list of commands the typed in boot, expecting it to boot into Suse but all I got was an error 8 Kernel not loaded message.

As the installation wasn't quite finished (no Root passwrod etc, i managed to run this of the cd to finish the installation, this eventually logged me into Suse.

However when i restarted my computer I got to the the same GRUB screen with the same error message, what should I do?
