i finally decided to try out linux and people told me to try out suse because its easier for newer users. However, since im new to it, i still want to keep my windows just in case so i wanted to do a dual boot system. I was told to make a partician so i made a 500 mg linux-swap partition and made a 30 gig ext3 partition for the linux. After i did that, i popped in the disk and started to rock n roll. Installation went pretty smoothly. However, it deleted the ext3 partition i made and replaced it with its own partitions. Well the dual boot went just fine, when it rooboted, it gave me the option to go with suse and windows. I choose to go with suse and it was up....except for a problem. It seems to freeze or lock up, in a weird way. After a few clicks of the mouse, its becomes unresponsive. I can move the mouse around but it seems the button doesnt work. I also noticed the clock on the bottom right stays in time which leads me to believe its not fully freezing and i type random stuff on the keyboard and brought up a search thing and i typed something random and it did search. I will also like to note that since im using wireless in my room, suse failed to connect to the internet and did not get any updates or anything.
Note: if need be, i can take my computer downstairs and connect it to a wired connection
