Unable to boot onto the desktop

I have installed Suse Linux on my computer. When I restarted the computer, it asked for username/password and when I provided the information, it returns to same screen, I have provided correct credentials. It is returning to the same screen and asking to enter the username/password.

|am new to this SUSE Linux, any help is highly appreciated.

At the green login screen

look to bottom left - sessions

pick icewm
try login with that

Also tell us - did you select kde or gnome at install, did you use dvd or live cd?
