    Yes ... do you want the SUSE menu to be black & white or do you want to use the Windows bootloader?

    You should find plenty of tutorials on the net for doing this ... I tried it with Windows 2000 which should be very similar - I posted outline and linked to instructions here

    easier to just use grub in black and white

    open the file /boot/grub/menu.lst and delete this line

    gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/message

    you will need root access to do this

    Open a terminal(konsole or gnome terminal or terminal program from the menu) and type
    Code:
    sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
    or
    Code:
    su
    nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
    There is also a graphical tool to edit the bootloader. It is located in YAST->System->Bootloader. See image

    But why do you get into all this trouble to get rid of the green bootloader to make it black & white??You don't like it or it causes problems?
