Please help me

Hello everyone,
i am sorry, my english bad, may i ask you in indonesian ?
i try to install SuSe Linux in my computer (there are 2 partitions, one for Windows XP, one for SuSe Linux). It work, but i don't know why, if my friend try to play armagetron, my computer will be 'hang' (couldn't work anymore). Is it because my computer not up to date ? (Pentium III, RAM 128, HD 20). I also couldn't back to my desktop if my friend click 'Ctr+Alt+F4' (there will be a word :LINUX LOGIN in my monitor). I am really new commer in computer, so forgive me if this is a silly qiestion.
Anyway, thank you for everyone help me.

Hi friend! Be calm, we will try to help you. But it has to be in english.
I have seen older computers running games like this before, so I don't think its a matter of hardware. If suse is working, very well, you made it. Lots of users don't get past this step, so, be proud.
Does your computer hang on any other task? Does it give you some warning, popup messages? Sorry for my ignorance in games, but this armagetron is linux or win?
The word "linux prompt" is ok. Cntrl+alt+F4 will take you to another terminal. Try Ctrl+Alt+F(1 to 7) and see what happens.
Post again if you get stuck. Remember to do some readings. In Linux you really need them. Its a great system, but you have to master it.
Also, give threads a more explaining title than "help me". This way you comply with forum standards and gather more attention.
Be welcome!
