    Default 11.4 Clean install will not boot past splash

    I just switched back to openSUSE from Fedora linux. I made a clean install of openSUSE 11.4, but had trouble when installing the boot loader. For whatever reason the auto-partition tool hadn't given me a /boot partition even though the GRUB configuration referenced it. So I switched the / partition to /boot and the /home to / and now I don't have a /home partition. Is this why my system won't boot past the splash screen in "normal" mode, but boots fine in "failsafe"?

    It's really not clear what you have done.

    Delete sda3 and sda2

    Create a new sda2 of 20GB, which will be for / (root)
    Create a new sda3 with all the remaining space for /home

    Make sure at this part it says to boot from root is enabled
