Try removing the 'desktop' setting from your boot parameters. Back when I
installed SuSE 9.0 I had untold problems with the system locking up and in
general unstable. Once I removed the 'desktop' setting I have not had a
problem, and have 15 SuSE 9.0 computers setup this way all using reiserfs.

See "Problems Caused by the Boot Parameter Desktop" for details.
