stop at the grub (or lilo?) prompt and add "single" as a kernel parameter.
(from rotten memory)

suse doesn't by any chance have sudo setup like ubuntu, does it? so no
root password, do root stuff as 'myuser $ sudo rootstuff' (where the prompt
is e.g. 'myuser $' and you type 'sudo rootstuff') and give the password for
myuser.
