    1)Not i get command mode straigte away with failsafe
    whats the output of 'startx' in failsafe mode?
    3)Yes i think so
    try again exactly what i suggested.

    execute this in failsafe mode
    Code:
    less /boot/grub/menu.lst
    post kernel lines under title 'failsafe' and 'Suse'.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
