when you get the boot screen try selecting the safe mode that is given as a boot option.

but when i boot the screen goes blank but the drive chatters and so on then my nvidia drivers come up then the cde so its ok

but i want to install suse insted of mandrake

i am sorry but i really have no idea what your situation is. does it install at all? what exactly happens? you are not being descriptive enough in your posts.
also, if you bought your suse linux distro, you have paid for telephone support also. call them up and ask them for support. there might be a hardware problem or incompatability that they can help you with.

I have seen this problem posted elsewhere, assuming this is the same "issue", simply plug your monitor's cable into the onboard video, or the AGP card still installed. The issue is that the "should be-BIOS-disabled onboard-video adaptor" is still being intialized at boot, and it ends up the default video for X, and friends. VMware uses an emulated video adaptor, which is a very common one, and boots normally because it will only see the one video "card" the VM is providing. Just a thought.

try doing a text only install, and select modules to load before installation begins. from there load the driver for you pci video card.
