Hi Lonni, thanks for your fast reply.

With vga=normal I dont get any trouble if I restart X or switch to console. Great. Thanks :-)
But why? 0x31a was set by SuSE-Installer and this parameter worked for me using Geforce 7800GT (SLI) + nvidia-driver < 97.46. Second question: Why do I see the console when machine is booting (and nvidia-module isnt loaded)?
Is it possible to get native lcd-resolution (1280x1024@60)?

1) Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS for the motherboard?
Yes, this is the latest (and last?) driver from Asus for my A8N-SLI Premium mainboard.
A8N-SLI Premium Beta BIOS 1302
Latest beta BIOS.
