My Dell C610 doesnt like suse

I just recently decided to try upgrading to suse 10.3. I downloaded the DVD off of the website, checked the MD5 to makesure it was good, then burned it. I installed it on my Dell Latitude C610, and at first it wouldnt load. It would get stuck on activating my pcmcia card devices. I took out my D-link 650 wireless card, and tried again and it worked fine. I installed it, and it seemed to work fine. I also installed Compiz. When it booted up onto the system, it again froze with the wireless card in, and worked fine when i took it out. When it finally booted up the video was just a bunch of crazy lines and squares, and kept freezing up. I reinstalled it without compiz, and got the same result. I tried installing using the Network cd i had also burned, but the suse servers are down right now so that didn't work. Finally i reinstalled it using ati drivers for video card, still same problem.

It was right about the fact that the video card was an ATI Mobility Raedeon M6 LY, so i have no clue what is going on.

With the wireless card, if i plugged it in after it booted, it would see and recognize it as the 650. I cant figure out what is wrong with both things.

Any help would be greatly apriciated

does no one know what this is. It is actually really weird. I have installed the Alpha 11, and it works perfectly. Some of the small problems included in an alpha version, but other than that it is fine


ati, c610, dell, dlink, mobility
