I just installed Milestone 2 x86_64 from the dvd. After the first part of the
install with auto configuration (all normal), my computer rebooted to a black
screen with a white cursor. I did ctrl>alt>F1 and it took me to a text screen
where the last output was ***Starting YaST2*** and a blinking cursor. Nothing
else happened, so I did ctrl>C and it looked to be completing the boot process
and gave me a login prompt.

I couldn't log in as normal user as none had been created. I logged in as root
and checked 'hwinfo --gfxcard and my nvidia 8600GTS was listed using the nv
driver. I tried sax2 -r -m 0=vesa but sax2 just hung up.

I then switched to text install and started over. I was able to get to the
configuration part of the install that way, which finished with no problems.
When I started X, I got another black screen with a white cursor.

This time the sax2 command worked and got me to the gui. Everything seems
normal after that.
