Install / Login problem

I installed OpenSuse 11 from the Live CD - everything went well while the CD was in there. It said that it needed me to logout and log back into the installed system, and then it would do some configuring. However, when I logged back in, there were 2 problems:

  1. It did not ask for a username / password
  2. Everything froze up when Gnome was still loading.

Can someone please help?
