New install 11.1 Gnome garbled screen after install

http://forums.opensuse.org – I just downloaded and burned this disc for 11.1 and burned it as instructed with Infrarecorder. It boots up to the selection screen aka (normal gnome, failsafe, floppy..) but if I go beyond this screen, my screen becomes a garbled mess, kind of like a burn in test in an old arcade game machine. I tried using 11.2 gnome and it wont install correctly either. This is my 5th install of 3 different types of openSUSE today. What is the deal?? Don't get me wrong, Ubuntu has its problems too, but at least it installs! I really want to change to openSUSE, but it hasn't worked in 5 tries! What can I do?
