Graphics problem at 11.3 LiveCD boot

http://forums.opensuse.org – I was looking forward to trying out the new 11.3 (KDE 64-bit iso) on my test rig. But when I boot from the DVD that I burned, the progress bar (just before the desktop loads) only gets half way and then the screen goes into a wonderful abstract of rainbow colours. At first I thought perhaps a bad DVD burn, but a second DVD produces the same result. Both DVDs boot OK in another PC, so I wonder if 11.3 doesn't like the graphics card on the test rig? The card is a standard Nvidia 9600GT which Mandriva and Windows 7 are both quite happy with. Any suggestions? (Distributions)
