Question Problems after installation

Hi all,

I'm just a starter with Linux. I tried to install Linux (Suse 9.0) on my Packard Bell iMedia machine, but are running into a few problems.

I have an USB Keyboard and a USB mouse. When I connect my USB Mouse I can't even install Linux. The system waits forever when it wants to activate the USB devices. I managed to start a manual installation, and even get this to a finish, but without my USB mouse. At the end of the installation my (USB) keyboard stopped working, but I managed to finish the iinstallation.

After I rebooted my machine, Linux will start but stops after "Starting acpid". I'm not able to start my Linux.

Who can help?

I dunno if i can help since I am a newbie too, and use a different distribution. But, have you tried a PS/2 keyboard and mouse? If it is a problem with the USB that might help.
