cannot start KSM server, Check your installation. Checked the
.xsession-errors which tells me my current CPU does not support SSE.
Something else I read, can't remember where, said the kernel was wrong
version. Can't find what the right one is supposed to be. Existing kernel
is Default. The KDE version is 4.1.3

I installed the nvidia driver so I could get my 8600GT 512 graphics card
working at full power.

I'm stuck at this point and don't know what to do. I can only use my
machine from cntl-alt-F2 as I cannot get to X.

AFAIK Opensuse 11.1 Kde4 I686.iso works on a 32 bit os and the 32 bit
kernel that would be installed for your cpu would be called kernel-pae
not default whereas the x86_64 version is called default. This could
explain why your kernel is the wrong version and why you are having
problems. The correct 64 bit iso is openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64.iso
.. You cannot run a 64 bit kernel with a 32 bit installation.
