    Maybe you should try adding "brokenmodules=pata_isapnp" at the boot time... without quotes offcourse.

    It seems you have a hardware problem. Is the HDD okay?
    Can you run a OpenSuse live CD?

    I have OpenSuse 11.0 running without any problems on my Dell Lattitude D630 (incl. wireless and 4 Gb RAM).
