Default Just another black screen thread....

After reading many threads about nvidia-driver-probs and possible fixes, i'm still stuck in the black screen problem. I'm using Suse and tried different environments with the same result...
Suse 8.2 vs Suse 9.0
BX-Chipset vs. Via KT133A-Chipset
Celeron 450 vs. XP1800+
TNT2 vs. Geforce3 Ti200
smp4G-Kernel vs. athlon-Kernel
4496-Driver vs. 5328-Driver

My first "successful" encounter was yesterday, when I bootet to "Init 3 , vga=normal apm=off acpi=off noapic". After Installing the 5328-driver on my XP1800+, with Suse8.2 & Geforce3,
i used "switch2nvidia" and started X rightaway without using Sax2 -> "black screen with blue flickers" as usual, but after about 5 minutes of waiting: a running desktop without 3D-acceleration...
init 5 leads to a "stable" system with blackscreen (I waited about 1hour).

What am i doing wrong???
Is it my hardware?

Thx for replies...
