Then i get the following message " FAILED TO START X SERVER "(your graphical interface).Its likely that it is not set up correctly.Would you like to view X server Output to diagnose problem?

I know this thread is kinda stretched,but i really need to install opensuse please help me out.
Did you do an "MD5SUMS check on the iso before you burnt it?
I need to know more info:
did you get past 1st reboot?
Did you get to the part about names & passwords?
If so, type “3” at the bootsplash, yeah, boot the install
that should boot you to the command line at runlevel 3
login as “root”
type: “sax2 -m 0=vesa”
sax2 should start and you can setup the display using the vesa driver
when you are done, save
Now search the forum for video cards like yours & go about setting up the driver for it.
If you didn’t get past 1st reboot, then I would reburn the iso at 8x and try the install again.
