Unhappy Trouble booting SUSE 9.3

I've been having trouble getting SUSE to boot. I've tried different boot options to no avail.

I just installed it and after the install it booted up fine. I ran the update and it installed quite a few things (including a new kernel). It told me to run a file /sbin/lilo (I think), but I wasn't able to do that before rebooting. Now, when I try to boot up it tells me this:

Loading required Kernel modules...done
INIT: Panic: segmentation violation at 0xffffe420! sleeping for 30 seconds.

Well, it decides to take a much longer nap and never do anything afterward. I've had trouble with installing linux before and I thought I was finally able to get it to work on this computer.

I wanted to mention I can boot into SUSE, but only through the first installation disk. It is also VERY slow and the internet doesn't work anymore (worked immediately after install).

If you've just installed SuSE then the easiest thing might be for you to install it again (new installation, not upgrade or repair) and not install the kernel upgrade when you run YOU. If you do want a kernel upgrade then maybe just wait until the 6th of October for openSUSE 10.
