Ok, thank you. I think I will try installing openSUSE soon just to see what happens! And before with linux mint 12 (in IDE mode) i installed the proprietary driver, and then it still wouldnt boot (just like opensuse). No i installed it and it's working beautifully! So basically your saying with OpenSUSE i just have to get the proprietary driver installed right after the inital install and it should work? Awesome! Once again, thanks a ton! Also, the whole "Boot, freeze, reboot, go" at the bios screen has stopped as well.
