Angry Suse 9 install problems

I have a problem installing suse 9 on my laptop, I get through the first disk and then my machine just shutsdown without any warning. I have tried about four times and still does the same thing. What is going on?

Try passing parameters to the kernel. Disable thing like acpi, apm, etc...
Does the installation cd offers safe mode installation?

yes it does offer safemode. I was just wondering if choosing to install everything would effect it in that way. maybe I should just do a default.
