This my first time using opensuse. the screenshot is show in the link ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting . i am unable to see or work anything. i suspect it is my nvidia graphics card problem but i am not sure. Any help would be very much grateful

    You need to tell us more.
    Do things function? What graphics device? or is it part of the mobo?

    suse starts up normally. and the desktop cannot be seen . instead a green blurred image comes in. when i press alt+ctrl+del i can see the original desktop for a fraction of a second so that i can shut down it by using mouse. the graphic device is inbuilt in mother board which is - Integrated programmable shader model 3.0 DirectX 9GPU Supports 256 mb of max shared memory Supports RGB with max resolution of 1920*1440 (@75 GHz) -

    I see the Asus site is less than helpful about the GPU, and is as you quote. Which means nothing, except that it's obviously made for windows. What we really need to know is the actual device chip.
    At the boot menu here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/11....stallation.jpg

    Did you try pressing F3 and select vesa ?

    So it's a DVD
    No such thing as a Live DVD

    So you ran the install or can't you get that far?
