Alrighty, I messed up a few things and decided to do a fresh install of openSUSE 11.0 w/ KDE 3.5. After the installation was complete, I tried to do an initial boot and after the grub screen, I saw the services starting…done, etc. I would then see:
Master Resource Control: runlevel 5 has been reached
Skipped services in runlevel 5: acpid avahi-daemon avahi-dnsconfd splash
Any ideas on how to get the computer to boot into KDE?
Anything in the relevant log files (/var/log/messages always applies;
/var/log/Xorg.0.log, etc.)? If you login at the shell and run ‘startx’
does anything work? It may be a misconfiguration of your
resolution/refresh rate for your hardware… Check the logs and see if
anything shows up there for starters.

I am qouting my original post cause it was too late when I notice the pound sign (#) in your command line. It was 10 minutes past and no way to edit.
Did you type the # sign before sax2 -r or is it resembling your root account.
sax2 will work only as root but if you are root and it is not working then there might be more problem than just the graphic issue, that you should look into.
Sorry for the delayed response, to answer your question, to # sign was indicating that I was logged in as the root user. I coudn’t get that to work for the life of me. The last time that I reinstalled I had an error, and oldcpu noted to me that I may be having issues with my DVD drive that I’m trying to install from. So I downloaded the network install CD and reinstalled everything again, omitting the need for installation from a CD or DVD, and that seems to fix the problem! I was able to boot initially just perfectly! Thank you guys so much for the help, I guess sometimes you just need a little push in the right direction to learn to think “outside” of the box.
