Yep, done that.

I can boot into graphical mode, using an external boot loader, be it a floppy 
or CD I can also boot up using the SuSE DVD in rescue mode which is a non 
graphical environment I think init2 as there is no shutdown or reboot you 
have to use ctrl-d which will re-boot the system.

H'm not done that, will put on my list of things to try.

This is really annoying as usually I can solve this in 5 minutes but this time 
I'm losing the battle :(
