When i boot with the disk and choose install the screen goes blank and does nothning, i disable the acpi, went safe install with no luck, i think the problem is the built in vga.

Hey Blue Screen, what kind of hardware are you trying to install Suse on? Have you verified the HCL on Novell's site?
Disabling the ACPI is a good idea, but in my experience is unnecessary on most newer systems.
Let's get some more info and see if we can get you on your merry way to open source land.

you're right about the acpi.
got a link to the hcl site?
i was able to install using the f2 and choose the text mode.

try text mode instalation or choose another vga resolution when booting from cd. You can choose 1024x768 or 800x600 or other if you press F2 (if i remember well). If none of the above resolution works then you better choose text mode. (especially if you have an LCD or TFT display)
