I am installing linux on my other computer this one being vista. The other being an XP. I am trying to clear the hard drive and install linux. (First time installing linux.)

I downloaded the openSUSE KDE LiveCD burned the image to a disk. then rebooted my system booting with the disk drive. A green OpenSuse Screen comes the options

openSUSE Live(KDE)
Failsafe settings
Check installation Media
Boot from Hard Disk
Memory Test


I chose the openSUSE Live option.

I get a message "Loading Linux Kernel". When that completes a Black screen with lots of white words telling me what it was doing.

Once that finishes it displays
Welcome to openSUSE 11.1-kernel 2.6.27.7-9-default(ttyl)

linux login:

If a input root as the login it says
"Have a lot of fun..."

if i press enter

linux:~#
linux:~#

What am I doing wrong? Where is the easy GUI installation.
