Hi, In new to linux as you can probably tell but i was hoping for some help. A little while ago i bought a magazine with the openSUSE 11.1 distro on it but couldn't install it so i gave up. I am attempting to have another go. The problem is that the os will work fine when booted from CD in fail safe mode and can be installed from there but when out of fail safe mode the system begins to boot but freezes and will do nothing more. I believe it to a be a graphics problem as this is my laptop and has an awful chip set, but i may very well be wrong.

Any help is much apprieciated but please keep it simple as i get easily confused, thank you.
