1. problems installing Suse 7.3 on new computer - system hangs - blank screen - HW problem?
I am quite new to the Linux world though I used to develop on a Solaris/Unix
workstation as a SW engineer.
I am now trying to install Linux Suse 7.3 on a new PC.
When I try to boot from the Suse CD 1, CD 2 or the bootdisk, I face the same
the system gets to hang completely (no keyboard interaction possible) and I
get a blank (black) screen after a few secs.
When I try to boot and load in text mode (F2) the following is displayed on
