Boot with alternative linux or a Live Linux CD and edit /etc/X11/Xorg.conf file.

.. Or run # system-config-display
which will also work in CLI.

In my RH EL5 / CentOS 5.4 / Scientific SL54,
I use an xorg.conf created with PCLinuxOS. ( Live cd.)
.. with these lines uncommented, like
# Load "type1"
# Load "freetype"

.. in Section "Module"

Text files are edited in an editor. Any Linux editor.
Getting the file : Run the live Linux OS.
Save the file ( and / or the edited file ) /etc/X11/xorg.conf
to an USB stick, or to Google Docs.
.....

Booting into 'run level 3' in SL 54 : Sorry, I don't remember,
lots of answers for that here at LQ.

when you get to the screen that gives you the message asking you to change resolution press CTRL+ALT+F1
This should take you to a console (virtual terminal). Try running the command there.

Good luck

Not really an option, when the OP gets a black screen.

I guess, you can add a copy of the Suse text,
from the ( Suse ) /boot/grub/menu.lst
to the SLC 5 /boot/grub/menu.lst ( grub.conf )


Network, SLC 5 : 1) su
2) system-config-network

Suse can be accessed from either SLC 5,

or even easier from your live Linux cd.

The issue here is not partitioning. Is just so, that SLC 4
isn't including other Linux in the boot menu.
Suse does. ( My boot menu for Suse 11.2 has 25 entries.)

So why not install the Suse boot loader, also grub :
Start / boot the computer with the Suse install DVD.
Choose : " Repair installed system " ..............
... which will go to a Menu, new choice → →
>> Expert methods.
>>> Repair Tool Box. ... And then please choose :
" Install new boot loader "

....
