I used the default kernel and had the rpms...also tried the vga=0x0317. I
installed using the 7.3 Pro version and didn't compile my own since I
know how to do it. The only difference was the CD/floppy. I've tried
everything that people mention to get it to work and nothing happens.

I'm not about to reinstall to get it working either. I can live with it.
Plus, it makes me look more impressive to my Windows buddies when they see
all the text flying by the screen.

You name it, I've tried it.

I've worked on this for months now and haven't come up with a solution.

I'd like some info also. It appears to me that if you don't set it up
installation, it won't work no matter what you do. I've tried every
recommendation mentioned. I installed SuSe in 3 systems. Of the 3, 2
the splash screen. Those 2 units were booted from the CD when I
SuSe and the one that doesn't have the splash was booted from the floppy

Strainge I know, but I've heard strainger.

1) make sure you use either a default suse kernel,
or if you compiled your own, make sure to do a mkinitrd
2) make sure you have the relevant rpms installed
[I forgot which, default and default with office both have it]
3) set the option
in lilo.conf

This may cause conflicts and or weird/shitty behaviour with certain video
cards, esp. on laptops with Geforce2Go or ATI rage (8Mb version)
Also causes sever conflicts w. Nvidia Geforce 3 Ti 500 boards
