    Did you try booting with 'nomodeset' . Also did you try the suggestion in the openSUSE-11.3 release notes ? (dare I ask if you read the the openSUSE-11.3 release notes ? ) ... ie :
    In the rare cases when loading the DRM module from initrd is a general problem and unrelated to KMS, it is even possible to disable loading of the DRM module in initrd completely. For this set the NO_KMS_IN_INITRD sysconfig variable to yes via YAST, which then recreates initrd afterwards. Reboot your machine.
    Note you can boot to a full screen text mode (run level 3) by typing '3' (no quotes) in the options line of the grub boot menu, and then login as a regular user, switch to root, and then run: yast

    You can navigate yast with TAB, Spacebar, < enter > and arrow keys. ie yast > System > /etc/sysconfig Editor > System > Kernel > NO_KMS_IN_INITRD and change it to "yes". This takes a minute or two to save once changed is submitted. (see below image examples).






    I hope that helps.
