Installation of SUSE 10.3 hangs midway...

Whenever I try to install SuSE 10.3, when it gets to the point where it has to auto-reboot after installing the boot program... It comes back up, but doesn't go back to finish the installation. What's the deal? If I go to "boot from hard drive" from the selection screen, it just comes up to a login prompt, but if I go to "installation" again, it starts the process all over again!

openSuSE 10.3, by the way.

My bad, but I was unsure which one to put them in and I'm really quite desperate here. I'm grasping for straws here, since Ubuntu won't load on my machine and Win XP SP 2 died on me.

Computer Hardware:

I have an ASUS A7N8X motherboard, 2x512 Corsair dual channel RAM, USB Keyboard & Mouse, 160 GB Western Digital Hard Drive (IDE), nVidia GeForce FX 5500 256 MB graphics card, AMD Athlon XP 3000+ Barton Core Processor, monitor is a 17" flat screen CRT monitor from HP.
