    Red face White screen (ATI Driver)

    Hallo,
    i'm a newbie with Open SUSE (and the other Linux stuff).
    I installed a ATI Driver but after reboot there is a white screen...

    I've read about a terminal and commands like "su-", but after alt+ctrl+F1 no commands work. Their is written that they are invalid, I think I typing it false.

    So I need help!!!

    open terminal, type "su" without quotes and provide administrator password.
    Thenm, type "sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx" (without quotes).

    When done, press ctrl+alt+backspace(twice) and login again
    Then should work.

    Go to Yast, system -> boot loader

    Edit it, and kill whatever you dont want. That is about easiest it can get.
