Suse 9.3 black screen

I have put Suse 9.3 on a system, the install was successful but when i boot in the system i get a boot screen then the welcome screen(w/green suse background) then the screen that says intializing hardware, then starting system then starting devices then goes black, after about 15-20 seconds i hear music (sort of like that flourish that windows open with), but still black screen. when i hit the power button a screen with the green suse background comes up and alll these lines about shutting down.

this system is using a A7N8X board w/athlon 3200 XP+ and a radeon 9800 pro video card. Please any one how can i get to use my suse?
