updated openSuSE 11.4 to 12.1 - can't get runlevel 3 - always 5

I updated openSuSE 11.4 / KDE 4.6 to os 12.1 / KDE 4.7 and among the 100 or so problems is this one that is making me nuts.
I have set and verified that inittab is set to id:3:default, I've checked using YaST2 (as anyone knows, what you set in YaST config does NOT always really happen) and by everything I can find, my system should boot to runlevel 3 and NOT KDE Desktop (KDM / KWIN)
the system is an IBM ThinkCentre and Has always been a pain with the audio and video, but never the config files being ignored..
at boot, it hangs for 10 minutes (no exaggeration, 10 minutes) just after it sets up eth0, IP address 10.5.0.193 which I specify. It does the same thing using DHCP, that is why I assigned, thinking it was waiting on the server because I changed and maybe messed up the wait time..
I've not sat there the whole 10 mins so I don't know what happens, but 10 mins latter, when I go back, KDE is up, ever time.
I can give you any info you need; messages, inittab rc.x,, what ever.
Thank you in advance,

Hello and Welcome, 3 years later!
I think that part of the problem may be DHCP. Disable it if you are assigning IP's manually.
