Have you made rpm file?

That is;

# sh ./ati-driver-installer-8.32.5-x86_64.run --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE102-AMD64

or

# sh ./ati-driver-installer-8.32.5-x86_64.run --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE102-IA64

Then install the driver with rpm file.

Have you checked xorg.conf?

Section "Device"
BoardName "Radeon X800 XL (R430) (PCIE)"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "radeon" <-- This must be "fglrx" If not, X freezes.
[...]

HTH.
