Fresh install of 11.2 leads to black/garbled screen

http://forums.opensuse.org – I've just installed OpenSUSE 11.2, and I've already come across problems. Could be KDE, I guess, because I'm able to switch to a console, but switching back gives me a frozen system which I have to to a hard shutdown with. On the other hand, I've got an ATI card, which could also be the problem. Anyways, when I boot into OpenSUSE I'm greeting by a black screen and cursor, with a garbled bar on the bottom of the screen that looks like the background of a CAPTCHA. So, any way around this? I was thinking that maybe I could edit Xorg.conf (wait, is that still around?) to load up vesa or something, but I'm not sure if that'll work. (Distributions)
